Great little museum filled with all things natural history. A little odd at times but that’s the Victorians all over really isn’t it! Good way to spend some time and with free entry you can’t really complain.

We visited on a Saturday and had a great time. It is crammed full of unusual and interesting exhibits - we would definitely go again. We were surprised it was free as it was bigger than expected, definitely worth a visit.
