  • A complete waste of my pension. The County museum is by a country mile far better value. I cannot recall such a disappointing experience anywhere in the U.K.

  • Very Good updated very resenly I advise you visit again due to the update Ipad and a cinema our little one really enjoyed it
  • Interesting in places but very dated and quite overpriced for the content. The audiovisual is an American production with no reference to this area. Feels a bit copy/paste with little effort.
  • Fantastic! Trying to entertain 3 children is not easy but this visit ticked all the boxes and they all came away chuffed with their Dinosaur Medals! A great visit, lots of fun and educational to boot. Very much recommend!
  • Disgusting price for the 15 minutes we spent there. No bones just plastic toys..dnt waste your time or money..
  • Staff not particularly friendly was on phone when we arrived. A lot of the exhibits were toys that you can buy for a few pence from a toy store. The cinema was out of service. We were there for about 20 minutes before our 3 year was bored and wanted to leave.
