Wow, what a great place to visit. If it wasn't for my 3 year old wanting to run around I could have easily spent all day looking and reading about everything. Completely fascinating and amazing that it's free. Look forward to returning very soon!

I highly recommend visiting this museum for families and educational pursuits. Not only is it free it was amazing to see so many types of animals under one roof. We took our 4 year old and she loved it. We will definitely be visiting again...More

A relatively small museum but jam packed full of interesting artefacts. Free entry however there is a relatively cheap guide book that can purchased. There is also a very simple cafe in the basement offering tea, coffee, cakes and kids lunch boxes.

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
