Visited today for a family member birthday cost £9 for a walk round someones house for all of 10 minutes.The fossils and dinosaurs were outdated and tatty.There were no facilities for prams or disabled the only way to reach the upper level is to climb a steep set of cramped stairs.

Me and my 2 children 4 & 7 and nephew 10 visited in Jan 2015. The main reason for visit was due to their school topic "back to the future" researching dinosaurs etc. Absolutely fantastic having this literally on doorstep. We knew it wasnt going to be like history museum etc - this is on a smaller scale - but... More

We came here with our almost two year old and she loved it, there were lots of dinosaurs to look (and roar) at, buttons to press which made noises etc. Upstairs there is a children play area with drawing, standout and a computer in the corner which we think had a game on it, but our little girl isn't quite...

I visited Dinostar with a young lad aged 9 and we both had a great time! There are lots of different types of hands-on activities to keep kids of different ages interested and engaged including ink stamps to collect during the visit and sound effects with the models. There was also a mock archaeological dig where you use brushes to... More

My husband and I took our 3 year old dinosaur-mad grandson. He thought it was absolutely fabulous! You can touch everything, there are lots of buttons to press, dinosaur noises, windows to look through, boxes to stick your hand in and feel. There were boxes to sniff, dinosaur stamps to find and stamp your piece of paper (free child admission... More

I absolutely loved Dinostar! Me and my husband took our 17 month old son just for a bit of fun to show him the dinosaurs not thinking it would be anything spectacular but it really exceeded my expectations. There's so many informative exhibitions with real fossils and dinosaur bones to be seen it was really interesting! My little boy loved... More

Obviously a labour of love for the owner of the museum whom I believe may be the polite gentleman you buy your ticket from. My two year old loved it! It isn't a commercial venture by the looks of things but if you go with the right attitude and get into the spirit of things then you will enjoy this... More

We went here after visiting another local attraction, and after reading the reviews I was pleasantly surprised! Yes it's very small, in a gruby area and in a very dated, dusty building! However the kids 5&8 loved it! It had lots for them to do from finding stamps to complete there sheet, to an archaeological dig!! It had lots of... More

We went here on a rainy day as the queue to get into another place was very long. Man on desk was very friendly and at 10.50 for 5 of us,it was cheap. Teenager wasn't overly keen but my 7 and 5 year olds enjoyed it. Liked finding the stamps and looking at the parts of skeletons. Upstairs,half the room... More
