Lots of children running around excitedly in the Egyptology room. A small boy looks at the mummified body and says."This one is well rotted". Then he runs off. Children can be excused for not engaging but as an adult I thought what a great reminder that we all die. This mummy was thousands of years old and it struct me... More

This museum is fantastic. Spread out of over 5 floors there is lots to see & do. Parking is available outside on a pay meter basis but these spaces fill up quickly so get there early. There are however other near by car parks within walking distance. Lockers are also available for a small fee. I think £1. All areas... More

A lovely large museum, with different themes on each floor, this is perfect for families and especially children with an Aquatic floor, a fascinating Egyptian floor and of course a floor of dinosaurs!! not the most complex of exhibits but well worth your time and children love it.

Lots here, great for kids. A big museum set in a big grand building in the arts center of town. Could have been a bit more.

So much to see, well displayed with info provided. Remains of funeral wreaths, ornaments, jewellery, decorated coffins, a huge and exquisitely carved head of Amenhotep III. Actual sandals worn by someone about 3000 years ago - you can't fail to get lost in contemplation. But more so, the mummies - some were not totally bound, but display torso and limbs.... More

The exhibition of their artifacts is fantastic. To be able to "read" from the ancient scroll of the dead is spine tingling. And entry is free!

We wish we had stayed longer as this museum looks like it offers so much to see and do. The Mummy Room is a sight to behold (with warnings)!

however I really enjoyed wandering about taking in the history. Not usually my choice of pastime but especially loved the Egyptian displays. Well worth a look. Free entry but it's good to support the museum by giving a donation.

Spent the afternoon here with my 12 year old son. Loved the different levels with all the different areas to see especially the aquarium and the Egyptian section. It's not massive so an afternoon will cover it. Admission free which is a bonus.
