Anglesey's diamond in the rough.

As others have pointed out, Stone science could use a refurb or even a jolly good dusting down but compared to many other rainy day attractions on the island this one was the one... read more

Awesome!! We had a birthday day trip here for my son's 9th birthday with three of his friends. We also took my 5 year old son and my own Dad. Found the specimens and tour very interesting. Full of fascinating facts. Kept everybody focused for two hours. A fair entrance fee for us all. I have an deep interest in... More

We had a fascinating tour of the place by the owner who is so knowledgeable. Excellent value for money. Items in shop were so reasonably priced. My grandchildren will love the place so I'm planning a visit with them. I can never look at stones and rocks in the same way again. Great place. Well worth a visit.

Having seen mixed reviews of this place, we went with an open mind. I can honestly tell you that it was wonderful. If you're expecting or wanting something like the Museum of Natural history, go to London. This place is a bit ramshackle & higgledy piggledy but even our 23 year old daughter loved it. It's not a big place... More

As others have pointed out, Stone science could use a refurb or even a jolly good dusting down but compared to many other rainy day attractions on the island this one was the one that kept the kids busy for the longest. We payed £14 for a ticket for 2 adults and 1 child (our littlest got in for free).... More

We went here today with our 10 year old boy, he liked it, however I have to say it is very high in price for what it is,we payed £14.00 for three of us which we feel was very steep

Stone science is not just a museum of fossils and stones. The love that went into its creation is visible everywhere. From the hand painted backdrops which lead you through different time periods, to a giant papier macher set of jaws to walk through, there are hundreds more tiny touches than the small space would seem to allow. Walking through... More

Just outside Pentraith, Ynys Mon. Nit very well signposted yet easy to find. On approach I thought it was a little shabby but once inside it gets better. It takes you kn a geological journey through the orehistoric era. I oearned that Jurassic Park was inacurate in that dinosaurs predated Amber by 10,000 years! The video on dhow was a... More

this place is a mine of information , interesting exhibits and interactive stuff on everything to do with prehistoric evolution , geology and fossils it is hard to be believe such a cool exhibit is packed into such a small place. Very much in the vain of those more traditional natural history museums and the added bonus is the upper... More

Okay, starting with a disclaimer here: if you're looking for the Natural History Museum, then it's in London. The Smithsonian is in Washington DC. If you're expecting that grade of exhibit then I'll politely suggest that you visit either. I've been to both and they're also excellent but in a very different way to Stone Science. Anyway, on to the... More

Not sure how other reviewers came to there conclusion, visited today and was totally dissapointed, totally amateur museum, untidy, confusing, and far too many exhibits that do not explaine or educate. Do not be misled by the other reviews or the leaflet. You will be left dissapointed and short changed!!!!!!
