Hard to find, poorly signposted, through an arch and turn right but well worth it. When I was little in the 50 museums had stuffed animals, then they got all social and educational. This museum gets back to those roots, skeletons, stuffed animals, pickled specimens...More
The museum and shop are excellent, we spent a good couple of hours looking at everything! Really fascinating stuff, my kids loved it. The shop has loads of really nice stuff not just your usual gift shop tat.
We did want to have lunch there...More
This attraction was recently reopened and covered different themes in the animal kingdom. From extinct giant Mammoth to other forgotten non-vertebrae were beautifully displayed. It's small but enriching as you go take in the formation. The children loved the food at the Whale restaurant!
Our 9 year old was fascinated! The museum is free to enter and a great way to spend a few hours. Fascinating exhibits - all very accessible - helpful volunteers who are happy to explain things. Cafe is lovely. It’s a must-see.
We visited during half term so very busy but it didn't spoil our time here.
Fascinating skeletons; my favourite being the elephants. Lots of people were sketching the various bones etc which was interesting to see.
The Whale Cafe was a good place to stay...More
