What a quirky place. Fascinating and great for children. Took my son and a child staying with us on exchange and they both really enjoyed exploring.

A very unusual place, with an eclectic mix of artifacts from all over the world. Can be visited along with The Natural History Museum as they are connected. Definitely worth a look.

Brilliantly fascinating collection of artefacts of modern man more primitive than those of Britain in development. Shrunken heads, Masks, Skulls of the Naga lands ,in India, African beliefs and Polynesian! Absolute must for a Visit!

Still outstanding. I visit a couple of times a year. New exhibits in place keep things fresh and there's now a cafe upstairs as well.
