  • What an amazing place, from the front garden throughout the two floors you enter a treasure trove of life through the last 200 million years. The care that has been taken to present this huge collecti...  more »
  • One of the main attractions in Lyme Regis. It is privately run and around 5 minutes away from the sea front. It was £5 entry per adult and is in a converted old church. It is split in two levels. Thou...  more »
  • Wandered past this absolute gem of a place and went in on the off chance. So glad we did as this is a real treasure trove of fossils and other artefacts that the owner has carefully curated himself. I...  more »

  • A real gem of a place. It really nice to visit an exhibit that has been created by an absolute passion and this such a place. Stuffed full to the rafters it's a place that you could probably visit 5 times and still find new things to see. The displays are laid out logically and some of the exhibits are breath taking. It such an understated place but inside is the mind of a dedicated paleontologist laid bear!
  • Very good! they've got some nice fossils, the owner helped us identify ours as well. The displays upstairs are hilarious as is 'what would dinosaurs look like today' exhibit! The cave bear skeleton is also awesome and well worth a look!
  • After spending a rather excessive £15 to take my two boys into the two small rooms of the Lyme Regis aquarium, order was restored today at the fabulous Dinosaurland Fossil Museum. For just £13 we were treated to a charming museum absolutely crammed with exhibits and information. My 8 year old and 5 year old loved the quiz trail, and we all learnt a fair bit on the way. The lady at the entrance was also very friendly! Great value and very educational, with a charm all of its own. Highly recommended!
  • Really interesting and value for money. My 5 year old son enjoyed.
  • If you have ever been to the Sedgwick Museum (part of Cambridge University's Geology Department) then you must go to this museum. They are on the same level with information and fossils. It is brilliant. My friend is a geology student and he could have spent weeks there. The children we say going around were fascinated over the range of all the different fossils and also the range within a range. Look out for the timeline going up the stairs. Well worth a visit for any adult and child interested in fossils.
