  • Thought we where going to see a real skeleton but it was a reconstruction. The fossils where great. Kids liked the big dinosaur. Cost us nearly £40 we whre in thre about 20 mins.sounds great on the we...  more »
  • Dinosaurs appeal to kids and the website certainly markets a venue which isn't really what you get. This is the main reason for the low score. We felt a bit duped but mostly a bit sorry for the place....  more »
  • This dinosaur museum is not worth visiting- as so many others have pointed out. Even if it was for free you would think the educational value is so limited that it is simply disappointing.  more »

  • 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.
