A great place to take your kids and/or parents for a couple of hours on a wet or dry day. Admission is cheap and make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Great hands on experience for all ages, with passionate presenter.
Good cup of coffee in the cafe, and not too expensive.

Very informative, a great little learning experience to have on a rainy day. A bit hard to find but worth it if your are looking for something short to fill an uneventful day.

The presenter clearly has a passion and knowledge for bugs/insects and he was very engaging, easy to listen to and everyone got the opportunity to hold a number of different insects including millipedes, giant snails and stick insects.
The show lasted an hour but hardly felt like it, even with a 4 year old.
Great value for money and would definitely recommend!
