  • I love this place and Oliver who runs it is so enthusiastic about the subject he makes the whole experience an educational dream I would recommend any school to take its pupils here especially early in the season when they can enjoy a less crowded museum.
  • A knowledgeable team of people run this place. Fossil hunting tour with Megan was great fun on a beautiful sandy beach. We found 125 million years old fossil wood, etc. and if you are lucky you might find a dinosaur bone or tooth. A rewarding and equally relaxing activity for kids and grown ups alike.
  • A gem of a visitor centre. Fairly small, but that is the beauty of it. Very personal advice and insight into fossils and IoW fossil history. Our boys, 8 & 6 we're thoroughly entertained for 1.5hrs. Too cheap to get in at £11 for a family!!! Should be £20+. Fantastic.
  • Wonderful place for visitors of all ages. A real gem in a lovely seaside town.
  • What a great experience I and my daughter Jessie had. Oliver our guide was fantastic with a broad knowledge base of dinosaur and evolution history (although I must admit I'm a Cristian Creationist) he was very approachable and his passion for fossil collecting was outstanding, a man who clearly enjoys his job, was a great experience! We even found a Dinasour fossil and bagged plenty of other less rareaties such as fossilised wood and fools gold. The other adults and kids on our trip loved it! What a great range of dinasour jems hidden back at the museum afterwards. Such a great day out, and very addictive!! I will definitely be going again when we visit next time. I even managed to buy three larger dinasaur pieces from the museum sellables! I'm hooked what more can I say. Thank you Oliver for sharing your 22 years of experience with us and for less than a takeaway Pizza what an utter bargain. Our tickets also included a reduction to the museam which was an added bonus. Win win! Defo go and take this tour it's so worth while.
