This museum developed out of one Victorian man's private collection of stuffed birds, and other animals, he had shot. It still houses his collection.

Really amazing if you are interested in that sort of dead, stuffed animal thing, but if you go with children especially if they are over 13 or under 5, i enjoyed it thoroughly even though my kids just hung out by the gift shop bit!

A great educational museum with so many exhibits to enjoy. The history just seeps out of the walls. .....and all this for free...but do put some money in the box to reflect on your enjoyment. First class.
