You're invited to hit the activity trail with Eco Dude (your totally recycled robotic guide), and join him on a voyage of discovery for all the family, taking a look at recycling for real, Mansfield's heritage, Escape to the countryside and much more along the way!

There are games to play, and you'll be asked to think about 'How green are you?' as you learn what you can do to make the world more ecofriendly.

XplorActive is the Environmental Gallery at Mansfield Museum and home of our resident eco-warrior - Eco Dude! Opened in November 2004, the gallery explores the environment in an entertaining and interactive way. In doing so, it suggests how children can make a difference in sustaining and improving the world they live in.

With loads of activities to engage visitors of all ages, why not pay Eco Dude a visit - bend, twist, count, trace, rub, follow, solve and even fish as you learn how to take better care of the environment. Our XplorActive gallery provides fantastic opportunities for children to learn about their local environment, its history, people and natural features - and what they can do to help preserve it.
