  • Wonderful collection of interesting rocks fossils skeletons, taxidermy and artifacts. Huge amount packed in to a building. Great for kids and adults. Would definitely visit again.  more »
  • Visited Dinosaurland on a wet and cold Saturday in February. Nothing prepared us to the sheer volume of artefacts. This is the place if you want to know the difference between an ammonite, a belemnite...  more »
  • The kids really enjoyed it, it's like a tardis, with loads of exhibits and lots of information to read too. Not just dinosaurs and fossils! We all learnt something and would recommend a visit, perfect...  more »

  • We really enjoyed it here. So many different collections from the area and lots of really good information with each exhibit. It kept our kids (5 and 7) busy for two hours and we could have stayed longer if it wasn't closing time. There's a quiz for the kids to do as they go around, that encourages them to read and learn about the exhibits. Very friendly people and the gift shop is a level above your normal gist shop! You can buy lots of different fossils and dinosaur bone fragments/teeth. We have a very happy pair of dinosaur fans now!
  • A small privately owned museum which houses a huge amount of locally found fossils. The story of fossil hunting in the area is told very well. Not a huge building but it's a great way to pass an hour or so and reasonably priced [summer 2017] Adult £5, Child £4, Family £16
  • 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!
  • Unfortunately there was not alot to see and was expensive for what it was. We were only in there for approx 30mins. Don't waste your money.
  • Brilliant if your a fossil lover go see Dinosaur land.
