  • Good place to go with the kids if they are interested in animals. Free entery. The car park isn't very big. 90% of the time it's full. But don't worry. If you go up the road do a right then the first left. You can park on the side of the road.
  • Fantastic museum to visit. I visited 30th September. My grandchildren are 5 years and 18 months and they had a wonderful time, both taking a keen interest in the world around them. Staff are fabulous. Friendly. Welcoming.
  • Brilliant Museum worth the trip, it's free to get in & plenty of parking. Only negative is the cafe is not open Monday to Friday so could not get a hit drink. But would definitely recommend.
  • Lovely well managed museum, & it's free! It's full of stuffed animals collected in 19th century from all over the world. If you're not squeamish you & your kids will love it.
  • An excellent place to Bring children. A car park is walking distance away. A fun day out for all
