This is an incredible place. Some amazing things to see but what really makes it stand above the rest for me is the knowledge of the volunteers here. They answered all of our questions and were able to give us lots of facts and history...More
Very welcoming and volunteers are extremely helpful and friendly, I even got a guided tour of the geology section. Packed with fossils, on display and in drawers. I would say keep your children on a tight rein not a place for them to run riot....More
