  • We returned to the Expeditions centre this year whilst we were on the island. Our two sons aged 9 and 13 love spending time looking around and chatting to Oliver and his team about their finds on the ...  more »
  • We did a 2 hour private fossil hunt. Only 7 of us in our party so all got lots of time to talk to our lovely young guide. This side of the island is very remote and beware the little chines where you ...  more »
  • Excellent exhibits and a very friendly and well informed staff. Kids get to sift through sand for fossils and, as well as guided tours, fossils are for sale. I spent some time in conversation, with Ol...  more »
  • 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.
  • This is a trip you will want to do with or without kids. You are guided by a palaeontologist with immense local knowledge through millions of years and shown the wonders around you that you'd never noticed before. Our guide, Oliver, was absolutely brilliant, my whole family left after the two hours inspired by his insights and enthusiasm. I cannot rate this highly enough, Oliver was absolutely superb,
