(NECN: Jackie Bruno, Worcester, Mass.) - Get ready to take a walk through history, at a time when men wore armor and chivalry dominated the day. The Knights! exhibit at the Worcester Art Museum offers a fascinating look at arms and armor in the broader context of history, storytelling and art.

It's an exhibit geared to audiences of all ages.

Marcia Lagerwey says all of the items in the exhibit were recently acquired from the Worcester Higgins Armory Museum. The authentic pieces come from all over the world and date back to Medieval Times.

The relationship between men and women is a common theme throughout the exhibit.

Kids have the ability to try on suits of armor in the interactive space, and they can ask questions.

The exhibit aims to combine fantasy with reality.
