  • Excellent place. Me and the parents spent 2 hours here and it was really interesting. I learnt things I never knew and I have been to a lot of museums over the years. :)
  • Excellent teaching museum for students - very helpful for zoology students especially!
  • Lovely collection of specimens and skeletons. Quite small but a nice way to spend an hour or so.

  • Small but well organised museum in the heart of one of the University departments. Not easy to find!
