This is a fascinating museum with trays and trays of exhibits packed closely together. There is always something interesting to see in every nook and cranny. It has a small shop and a basic kids activities zone. Combine with the other nearby college museums

Interesting, quaint museum. A terrific collection of artifacts, thousands of fossils, some of which you can touch. Easy to get to in the centre of the city. Well the visit.
