We really had an interesting time at the museum. There is a nice aquarium, the Egypt exhibition is very good, a beautiful collection of Japanese netsuke, African masks etc. There should be something for everybody. And it is for free. A good weekend undertaking with the kids too.

Really interesting place to visit whatever your age. Access was very good and the restaurant was extremely inviting with a very varied menu and also very well priced especially as it is in the city centre. Disabled access was exceedingly good with ramps everywhere for elderly as well as disabled people. It is very airy and easy to find your... More

Fascinating exhibition of ancient Egypt - biggest besides that at the British Museum, showing 5,000 years of history from the Nile Valley to the Roman Empire. The way of life of the people of Egypt from birth through to the afterlife. A room which had been closed for 150 years was opened to display Mummies - 4 mummies and their... More

Even if you are not into Egyptian Mummies this can not fail to interest you, it is with out a doubt one of the best exhibitions in the UK. The amount of information and interesting items is staggering and well worth a visit. Even beyond the Egyptian exhibits there is a mountain of interesting things to see. Certainly a good... More

Lots of children running around excitedly in the Egyptology room. A small boy looks at the mummified body and says."This one is well rotted". Then he runs off. Children can be excused for not engaging but as an adult I thought what a great reminder that we all die. This mummy was thousands of years old and it struct me... More

This museum is fantastic. Spread out of over 5 floors there is lots to see & do. Parking is available outside on a pay meter basis but these spaces fill up quickly so get there early. There are however other near by car parks within walking distance. Lockers are also available for a small fee. I think £1. All areas... More

A lovely large museum, with different themes on each floor, this is perfect for families and especially children with an Aquatic floor, a fascinating Egyptian floor and of course a floor of dinosaurs!! not the most complex of exhibits but well worth your time and children love it.

Lots here, great for kids. A big museum set in a big grand building in the arts center of town. Could have been a bit more.

So much to see, well displayed with info provided. Remains of funeral wreaths, ornaments, jewellery, decorated coffins, a huge and exquisitely carved head of Amenhotep III. Actual sandals worn by someone about 3000 years ago - you can't fail to get lost in contemplation. But more so, the mummies - some were not totally bound, but display torso and limbs.... More

The exhibition of their artifacts is fantastic. To be able to "read" from the ancient scroll of the dead is spine tingling. And entry is free!
