Great little museum that has been in operation for years. The personal collection amalgamated here is impressive, if not a little obscene if it was collected today! Nevertheless there is lots to look at and learn. A chance to see some animals up close that...More

This has an amazing collection of birds, butterflies and bones. Unless you have a real interest in taxidermy or skeletons, you will whizz round very quick. Some of the bird displays were amazing for the work that has been carried out with no apparent damage...More
