Pre booked due to all the hype - more expensive and you could have just walked in. £15 for two adults. Exhibits basically in about 3 or 4 rooms and mixed in between the standard ones at Wollaton Hall. Mainly a few dinosaurs and lots...More

Slightly disappointed, I had hoped the new exhibit would make Wollaton Hall more appealing, unfortunately not. Good for kids if they have never been to a dinosaur museum before. 🤗

Great graphic displays (especially as you first enter the exhibition!) very informative! We very much enjoyed learning more about these amazing creatures from prehistoric China! Great for small children (we adults even took part in the quiz looking for fun facts!). Overall a wonderful experience!...More

Not much to say really, expensive and a bit boring! A few fossils and some huge fake plaster skeletons. They've tried to incorporate the existing exhibits into the display (which are free to view usually) but it doesn't really work. It's not what it makes...More

Having seen these exhibits on numerous TV programmes, I suspect folk think they are common. Not at all - this is a one off for the UK. Yes, the old hall and the existing Natural History displays are a bit threadbare, but the fossils made...More

We went as a family day out, as I am very interested in dinosaurs. I did enjoy what was there, but just as you are getting into it, its over. Half of the attraction is what is already in place in Wollaton (which is starting...More
