For $5 you can enter this quirky place that was once a theatre. Inside is a bizarre range of dinosaurs and taxidermy exhibits which are fun to look at, sketch, photograph ... Afterwards you can grab a coffee nearby.

Hidden away in Guidford (although the huge dinosaur outside might give it away) is the Academy of Taxidermy museum. What a surprising treat to view so many species on display... Some spooky, some amazing and some totally awesome. We spent ages looking through the exhibits...More
