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

Visited whilst in Southsea and was passing by. Went in because it is free. Felt it was slightly disingenuous as it only gradually reveals its real message which most certainly is not scientific fact and open minded views towards homosexuality and abortion for example. The...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

Tiny museum, not too much to see, but a lot to think about. Challenge your thoughts. What if...? What is a fact? What is your explanation based on? Why? How do you know?

Open your minds. Consider an alternative to evolution. Everything is explained very clearly. The displays are mind challenging. Read the literature and watch the videos. Yes, it does need updating. As someone else said it is run on a shoestring.

How rude and closed mind many people are. Go here to look again and think about the implications. The staff are gentle and unobtrusive and not at all trying to push their beliefs. Read some of their discussional leaflets. Think beyond all the scientific "truths"...More

Amazing visit, it was the best thing we visited while in Portsmouth. The mineral and fossil collection is great. The troubling part is sometimes they know all the arguments for evolution, genetics, geology, fossils and chemistry however they just fail to connect the dots because...More

This is not a fossil shop. This is a creationist exhibition. Marvel at the poor displays, cherry picking of evidence and lack of logic. Then run before the staff talk to you.
