  • Incredible place. Very friendly staff, superb museum (free) with lots for the kids to do. Lovely shop with gift ideas and reasonably priced. With the bonus of a great cafe. Please leave a donation this great little place is charity run.
  • Great place for a visit and to discover more about the New Forest, check out the website for seasonal special activities for kids of all ages. Also, now the information centre has gone there's a great cafe inside the museum building too.
  • Great place to learn about the history and wildlife of the new forest and local area whether you are on holiday or local. I went there with my 7 year old daughter and we both found it very interesting and informative. There is lots to see and do especially for the children. Friendly staff, nice little shop and good for parking as next to Lyndhurst's main car park
  • Donation suggested but otherwise free. Quite low key but nice for a stroll round. Most thought provoking is the story of King William Rufus getting accidentally shot with an arrow in the forest while hunting. Oops! I can't imagine the culprit was let off with a telling-off
  • Lovely museum and gift shop. Perfect for a walk around whilst visiting Lyndhurst. Friendly staff.
