  • Well worth the small entrance fee. Probably one of the cheapest ways to keep the kids entertained for an hour Some good interactivity for the kids. Interesting for all ages. Very reasonably priced souvenir shop.
  • I'd love to rate it more as it is quite quaint, but I went here following the positive ratings on here and felt let down. With a 3 and 5 year old we stretched our visit to about half an hour, maybe 40 minutes. There are dinosaur models of most of the popular dinosaurs, t-rex, triceratops etc, some Jurassic Park memorabilia, a sand table where children can use paintbrushes to discover bones and some colouring activites, an old PC in a corner with a Jurassic Park game running on it. Perhaps slightly older children with an interest in dinosaurs would have enjoyed reading some of the facts posted around. An activity to collect stamps from around the museum engaged our children for a little while, but over all the whole place lacks any kind of wow factor and looks very much like an old house (that could do with a good clean and freshen up) containing an eccentric dinosaur enthusiast's collection of prehistoric themed bits and pieces. It is relatively cheap to have a look around, which is positive, but the price reflects the content.
  • My 20 month old loves this place! I would've said it needs updating but seeing how excited he was I realised it's more than enough for kids to enjoy. Very happy!
  • This is a small but we'll displayed dinosaur and fossil museum where you can touch, hear and smell the exhibition. Well worth the visit.
  • There was only 3 rooms to go through and they are tiny. Not only that but half of the space did taken up by cinema posters on jurstic park and Harry potter.
