I had another great visit here. There is so much to see and the displays are amazing. One of the best museums outside London. The Roman exhibits are particularly impressive. So many mosaics! Free entry as well.

Very informative with its displays and information. It has a woolly mammoth, the kids will love it. It’s free, but please donate. There’s 3 museums all in the same area and are all free
