We are fairly regular visitors here as there is so much to see! Best of all FREE entrance. We always enjoy it so much we end up giving a generous donation as we leave. It is quite warm here so there are lockers in the entrance to leave coats/bags etc. There are different floors with things to explore - time... More

My husband and I walked here after spending the early afternoon at the Walker Art Gallery. This museum is a lot of fun for people of all ages, and better yet, it's completely free (but feel free to donate). There are several floors, each dedicated to a certain topic (aquarium, dinosaurs, space). Our favorite was the space floor. They have... More

It's a lovely little museum with loads of interested things to see. The best part was the second floor with the insects. It's great for a free museum. Only thing that wasn't good was the cafe on the top floor...food was dry and expensive. Would defenetly go again as they're renovating it and adding new things.

Been to a lot of museums with the kids, this one has to be one of the best I've seen. Fantastic, totally free (Make a donation if you want too - most people do because its that good). 5 floors of different things. Space and Time, Dinosaurs etc. Lots to see and do.

Went here on a rainy Sunday afternoon with my husband and little boy. Definitely worth a visit. My little boy loved the aquarium, the dinosaurs and all the stuffed/model animals. Certainly can't complain when it's totally free apart from a donation. Will certainly return in the summer.

Drab, dark and gloomy. Some interesting exhibits, but no WOW factor for me. The aquarium tanks were filthy. From what I saw the staff didn't really engage with visitors. Lots of schoolchildren who seemed to really enjoy the bugs. Very disappointing attraction in such a historic yet progressive city. Would not recommend.

Many artifacts from all over the world and there wasn't enough time to see all. Would be good to return soon.

Went on a weekend trip, and loved the way it was laid out - every floor with a different theme Suitable for all ages, aquarium for younger kids (and the panto) while the cultures of the world was definitely more for adults. Absolutely fascinating displays! Cafe not great though and some sections were a little dull, like the space and... More
