Nice museum to walk through and see the enormous variation of birds, the large amount of skeletons and butterflies. The museum is easy to reach as it is outside the busy centre area. Parking available. Visit takes about 45 minutes and is free.

What a superb display of natural history and fossil items. They speak for themselves. Great to see the real thing and no plastic models or push button screens etc. Well done.
