I collect fossils and was pleased to find this 'exhibition' Unfortunately as you walk around you slowly realise that the whole idea is to lure people in in order to promote creationist theories. The idea of making it appealing to children is an unpleasant method...More

We popped into this place while getting the train and I never thought it would actually be free. Its not often you find a place to take the children that's free and the shop after is very cheap. The children bought a toy each and...More

i was really looking forward to visit this place, what a big disappointment, you are lured to believe it is a place to see fossils but soon realizes it is a cover up to spread biblical propaganda, i felt completely stupid

Excellent and informative. Takes a critical, scientific look at the theory of evolution. And it's free!

I had some spare time while waiting for the train, so decided to pop in. My time would have been better spent sitting at the station. Absolutely awful. It lures you in with fossils but quickly reveals its true intention; creationism. They cherry pick their...More

This place is the worst kind of anti-science propaganda. They suck you in with the promise of a free fossil exhibition when it’s true intent is to indoctrinate people into the world of misinformation that is creationism. Do not go to this place as all...More

A smallish and totally free exhibition. A few reasonable exhibits but it is essentially a propaganda and publicity machine for the creationist movement. Virtually every exhibit decries the prospect of evolution. There are a number of fossil type items for purchase also. Worth a quick...More
