  • Local or not this is a great place to return to year after year as we have my kids have grown up,with this place. Always something new to experience, and an amazing collection too. 
  • We have been here twice, with a family of six (four children: 7 and under). It is fun and educational, but does take a little getting used to. My mother-in-law couldn't even step foot inside to start ...  more »
  • Definitely a must to visit this little museum. Lovely staff, who are eager to chat - interesting and knowledgeable.

  • Brilliant place to take the children, lots to see and do. There are no dinosaurs though, so some little ones may be disappointed. It's all free as well which is amazing really. A fiver chucked into the donation box wouldn't be enough.
  • Wonderful museum which generally isn't too busy. A great place to explore whether old or young, and a great park 5 mins walk away.
  • Better than the well kept exhibits on show are the looks and questions they raise from my children - well worth a visit
  • Fantastic value for money (it's free!). The kids loved it and learnt a lot in the time they were there. Thumbs up from me.
  • Don't led the prospect of stuffed animals put you off. Kids (and adults alike) will find this a fascinating place to visit. The extinct animals cabinet is a poignant display. A display of dressed fleas is hidden in there somewhere. A perfect bad weather option.
