To open the tour, click on the “play” button in the image below and it will open in a new overlay.
There is a “guided tour” which takes you through the whole space, this is accessed via the smaller “play” button in the bottom left corner, you can pause it and go backwards and forwards as you wish.
Alternatively you can navigate around the space by clicking on a distant object and pan around by “dragging” with the mouse or your finger.
There are hotspots which give you more information on the various items, these are still being added so check back regularly!
West Lindsey District Council (WLDC) recently awarded us a grant to replace the broken windows in our Broadcast Engineering Museum building in Hemswell Cliff.
