A little gem in the centre of the town

Great place to go and get lost in time, there's something there for every taste. It's so deceiving, it doesn't look that big from the outside but be prepared to be amazed.

What an unexpected surprise. Took my 3yr old daughter during half term and we both had a great time. She absolutely loved it and the staff member we were chatting too was very good.

Great place for getting up to speed on the history of the area and a very quirky display of mounted fish! Lots for kids to do too with loads of exhibits in both the paleontology area and the local history sections.
