  • My 6 year old daughter loves coming here. The dinosaur is always a hit. A small but welcoming museum with interesting exhibits.
  • Really good place for children to learn. Sadly the bees and butterflies were not there when we visited. Staff were so lovely and helpful.
  • Surprisingly good. Don't expect to spend more than an hour or two, but really good exhibits and a nice range of samples.
  • Really enjoyed taking my kids here! Great day out
  • Twenty minutes well spent if you like stuffed animals.
