This place is AWESOME!! :-D Our kids absolutely loved it! From the first "Oh WOW!" as you walk in the front door, to the hundredth "Oh WOW!" as you're ready to leave, this exhibition is just amazing! Michael, the owner and taxidermist extraordinaire, was such a delight to talk to. He shared some hilarious stories that had us all cracking up with laughter! His lovely wife was keen to get the kids looking for unusual exhibits, including the "strawberry shells", which kept them busy for a while longer. The hard work and detail that goes into this exhibition is easy to dismiss because it's so well done that it looks effortless. We're only giving 5 stars because Google won't let us give it 10! If you're looking for something special to do on a rainy or dry day, this is it! :-D

Went here with my Aunty and it was a wonderful place. It was packed with exhibits. We had to walk around twice to make sure we saw everything. There are also some more dinosaurs out the back.

Great atmosphere, we almost missed it at first but when we entered we received a very warm and friendly greeting. The place itself is filled to the brim with artefacts, taxidermy, casts, moulds and skeletons of all types of creatures. It was a little difficult to get a look at everything they had there because of how packed it was with these figures, but overall it was a great experience!

For the small fee , the Guldford academy is a small place but a treasure house of knowledge and interesting things.

Large indoor area filled with many wonders, mostly animals of all shapes and sizes. Lots of information and history to read about.
