Well - we had a short walk to get there from the shopping centre. It kind of went downhill from there. 2 adults and 2 kids - £9 entry. It took us 25 minutes to do everything and that included a trip to the toilet,...More

We would argue that our dinosaur museum does offer value for money – £9 for a family visit to a privately-funded dinosaur museum is not expensive! In terms of your visit, I doubt that you read “everything” (few people do) – I haven’t counted up...More

Brought my grandson for a visit to see and read about dinasaurs. He loved it racing from exhibit to exhibit pressing buttons and reading factoids. He loved the stamp game trying to find how to complete his sheet and really enjoyed his time here. The...More

Many thanks for the review. We keep our admission prices and gift shop prices reasonable for families. I am glad your grandson enjoyed collecting the stamps – it’s a popular activity!

We thought it would be a good idea to visit Dinostar with my two children, presuming that there would be some real skeletons like a museum would. When we arrived it was nothing but cheap plastic models and some of which my children already have...More

I am sorry that you didn’t enjoy your visit to our dinosaur museum but I would suggest that your review misrepresents our attraction. We have real skeletons as well as genuine and replica dinosaur bones – many of which you can touch. Our life-size dinosaur...More

Thank you for your review and I am glad to hear you and your grandson enjoyed our dinosaurs. We do design our exhibits to be child-friendly and “hands-on”.

It is a very small building on Humber Street, [ terrace style house] with scaffolding on outside. We visited at the week end, - quite a few children there who seemed to move from ehibit to exhibit. Good hands on enjoyment for children - spend...More

Thank you for your review. The scaffolding is there to allow for some repairs to the roof of our building and our neighbour's; not ideal for the summer holidays but the weather is better at this time of year for that type of work. The...More

Different, and only a few pound to get in. Good fun for little children who like dinosaurs, killed an hour.

Thank you for your review. We are the only dinosaur museum in the area and we do try to make the exhibits as accessible as possible to families and, especially, children.

Visited today with a toddler and 11 year old. Both children enjoyed the experience. For £1.50 it's great value for money. The building could do with a little more attention to the interior, but the kids didn't notice. Will return.
