There is plenty to keep children busy with the Easter bunny quiz that my 4 and 16 year old both enjoyed doing, also sand pits with fossils hidden and plenty of sit on dinosaurs with photo... More

Had a really fun time today doing the Easter hunt, sitting on dinosaurs finding fossils etc. My 6 and 8 year olds loved it and they got a little fossil at the end. Nice touch. Very child friendly staff too.

I took the kids to this as they were really keen to go. It wasn't bad, they had fun but it's very small and you're forced round in one direction. If it weren't for the quiz they give out we'd have been in and out in 20 minutes. It's not bad for a rainy hour, but not really worth the... More

Very informative attraction, great for families with a fun quiz for the children to complete on the way way round the venue. Lots of photo opportunities along the way. Great value for money.

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your lovely comments following your recent visit. Unlike many exhibitions and museums we really encourage visitors to take souvenir photos next to such incredible creatures as the titanic Triceratops and the terrible Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as sitting on other dinosaurs such as our baby Brachiosaurus. Great to hear you think the visit was value... More

My husband and I saw this attraction advertised and knew we had to take our dinosaur-mad toddler! We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman who is obviously very good with children and he took our pram am for us to keep it safe by the till as we walked around! The exhibition isn't huge but they make great use... More

Firstly, my son LOVES dinosaurs and I got a 'deal' on groupon ( still £5.95 each ). My son is 3 and really loved it. He was terrified of the loud noises but after a while he got used to it. He really enjoyed looking at the displays, having his photo taken with the dinosaurs and digging for bones. This... More

It’s disappointing though to read that you felt our exhibition is expensive. The Groupon deal was actually entry for 2 people for £5.95, not... More
