Just been to the museum with 2 children of 8 and 10. Really enjoyable afternoon with lots to see and learn. We all enjoyed the fleas dressed up, make sure you look out for them!

A great place to visit for all the family, we did see some younger children (under4) being a little bit frightened, but most didn't have a problem. 6 galleries full of exhibits, the polar bear and tiger were very impressive.

I don't think I've visited a museum before where I had to eventually move the kids on from room to room as they thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of their visit. The museum has a fantastic collection of stuffed animals, birds and other artefacts. We really...More

I had been in the area a few times but never visited the museum. Well worth a visit but it would need a good few hours to make the most of the exhibits and information available. I was good to wander around the place at...More

According to the website they're only closed between 24th and 26th December. I'd give them a call to check about New Years Day and the 2nd January though. They're usually open on bank holidays. If you haven't been, it's... More
