I took my elderly mother to see the Staffordshire Hoard exhibition. There were lots of interesting exhibits and there was lots of information available on each piece and also on video clips which you can access yourself. The staff were very helpful and provided a magnifying glass to help my mother see the exhibits. We watched the DVD about how the hoard was discovered and the work that has been done on it. This lasted about 45 minutes and was extremely interesting. Altogether we spent a couple of hours in this exhibition before visiting the Spitfire exhibition downstairs, which again was very interesting, especially for anyone who lived through WWII and remembers seeing the Spitfires flying overhead. There is also a beautiful, gigantic mosaic picture in the foyer which is well worth seeing. There is no charge for visiting the Museum but donations are welcomed. Overall we had a fantastic half-day outing which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
