  • Brilliant hidden gem in Edgbaston. Spent maybe an hour to an hour and a half here but could have easily spent longer. Little place but loads of information and brilliantly laid out. Lots of children here who loved it so that was great to see - children taking an interest in geology and not just dinosaurs! Will visit again!!
  • Very interesting. University run so all info is top notch. Small place so an hour or two is sufficient.
  • Fantastically curated museum. Great for adults and children and, whilst not particularly large, should occupy for an hour or so. Highly recommended
  • Fantastic little museum!! It is small so is not at all overwhelming, I would recommend this to everyone!!
  • Staff were so friendly and helpful. Kids loved the minerals gallery.
