  • Very good museum. Free entry and free car park. Lots of stuffed animals to see. Nice Cafe aswell. Easy enough to find, you could quite easily spend 2-3hrs with the kids looking at things.  more »
  • This is a hidden treasure, free to enter and packed full of learning (as long as you don't mind stuffed animals). Only downside is that there is only a small cafe and it is a bit of a walk to town. If...  more »
  • Was simply amazed how good this place is!! Loads of amazing examples of all sorts of animals, they ask for a donation to help maintain the museum, well worth a visit!  more »

  • 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.
