  • Absolutely love this museum. We go every school holiday. My grandchildren always enjoy the activities & it's free! Well worth a visit.
  • Great museum, cafe closed at the minute thou. Kids love the natural history section on the lower floor.
  • Great place to have a look around if you're in the area and wanting to kill some time. Some really interesting exhibits and local history pieces.
  • Great exhibit although small. Both my 8 year old daughter and myself found something of interest.
  • Good museum. Only had a quick visit to see Bob Barker art exhibition. All I saw was good, staff, children's activities in basement natural history exhibit, toilets. Located in a beautiful public space.
