  • Fantastic place full of local history especially the coal miners part. The garden inside is incredible too. The park outside is also very nice too.  more »

  • Gardens, despite being smaller than anticipated were impressive, pathways were easy to traverse. Elevator was a bit bumpy, and didn't leave a sense of safety. Museum was a good journey and very informative. Easy to find and free admission, couldn't ask for more.
  • Nice museum in the city centre. A lovely cafe which backs onto Mowbray Park. Really busy during school holidays.
  • This museum is an absolute gem. It's completely free and full of intriguing facts for adults and children alike. The actual garden part is beautiful and very serene. It also has a reasonable cafe and is right in the centre of town, and attached to a lovely park.
  • Nice place for a little wander around and nice and warm if you are cold in winter.
  • Enjoyed the winter gardens with my granddaughter. She loved the dinosaurs and eggs. Unfortunately the upper part of the museum is closed for refurbishment so we'll pay another visit later in the year
