Reviewed 11 April 2014

Smallish museum, with a decent section on Dinasaur's old victorian exhibits upstairs, ok for a hour or so.

“Nice little museum”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Took my dinosaur obsessed two year old round the museum today. He loved every second of it, lots of interesting things to look at and read about. The Lost Dinosaur exhibition is great for children. The staff were very friendly and my son liked the little gift shop.

“Piles of rocks”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

If you like your fossils and staring at indiscernible chunks of rock, this is the place for you.
Geologists will love it, I kind of expected more, however it has been there since the 1830s so its fair to say it appeals to someone.

“Museum with a difference”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The Rotunda, although not very big, is really interesting as they have some classic exhibits and, from my experience, tend to change things much more frequently than other museums.
