Free entry and very reasonably priced fossils. There is an exhibition comprising a dozen or so stands (with commentary) explaining the flawed assumptions, lack of evidence and downright lies used to promote the theory of evolution as fact in the mass media and education institutions....More

A very disappointing place to visit. From the outside it sounds as if it is a genuine fossil museum but inside it is just trying to indoctrinate you with creationist/religious theory. It is basically just about the bible.

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
