This museum is small. So don't expect a full day of activity. It is essentially a taxidermist's dream. Loads of cases full of an enormous variety of stuffed animals, displayed around the edges of the building and an interactive section through the middle. Worth a...More

Fairly basic natural history museum, but considering it costs nothing and is made up of items from a personal collection it's worth a visit. Lots of taxidermy animals, some done well others not so. Some of the signs like to point out that Mr Booth...More

This museum developed out of one Victorian man's private collection of stuffed birds, and other animals, he had shot. It still houses his collection. Some might say it's a shame how this part of the museum's collection was gathered, and it is, but equally it...More

Took my children here on the school holidays. Very interesting, informative place with lots to see and do. Interesting stuffed animals for adults and children and lots of activities for the kiddies to do.

Really amazing if you are interested in that sort of dead, stuffed animal thing, but if you go with children especially if they are over 13 or under 5, i enjoyed it thoroughly even though my kids just hung out by the gift shop bit!

A great educational museum with so many exhibits to enjoy. The history just seeps out of the walls. .....and all this for free...but do put some money in the box to reflect on your enjoyment. First class.
