This museum is well worth visiting.As well as local exhibits it also has ancient Egyptian items and a lot of natural history exhibits.
It's well laid out and very interesting.

We thought this would be a good way to spend a wetish morning. This museum & Art gallery has a very good Egyptian exhibition, Some fine paintings by local artists also various other attractions. A good venue and very child friendly, with interactive things.
It has a full calender of events throughout the year. I would recommend it to anyone with or without young children, It is also free, I hope it stays free after September this year.

Some really good exhibits. Having been to Giza, we enjoyed the Egyptian section. There was quite a decent display of local flora and Fauna, some fine paintings of local Royalty and some interactive stuff for the kids. The museum was warm and clean and we found it very educational
