We found this place on Trip Advisor and pencilled it in for a visit. We are so glad we did as it is fantastic. There is so much to see and stacks of information but set out in a really fun way. Whilst some may feel this place is a bit dated we loved the fact it was so eclectic... More

This is such a mixed bag of a place, such a lot of fascinating treasures to discover but not in an organised manner. There is so much to see and the children were entranced by everything on show. However, it is such a shame that the exhibition is not better laid out. But still worth a visit.

Stone Science is an excellent place if you are interested in Fossils, Crystals or Geology, I would really recommend the place, the owner has a great knowledge about Geology & Fossils, even though i liver near chester i will always visit the museum for geology.

I would like to give it 3 1/2 stars because average undersells it but very good oversells it… An intriguing little place that has the unmistakable feel of being somebody's hobby/passion that was ordered out of the family home by a spouse! "Either you find somewhere else for your collection or I'm off"...! At £17 for a family it's not... More

It's hard to imagine that this place is such a geological/paleontological treasurehouse from the road. Interesting, fascinating and particularly reasonable entry fees.

I am writing as an amateur geology interest group facilitator, but my comments would hold true for a family outing. Nine of us, with geological knowledge ranging from nil to degree level, visited Stone Science as part of our U3A learning experience. What an experience!! David and Delyth Wilson treated us royally and amazed us with their treasury of exhibits... More

Dave is not your typical museum owner. His passion for geology is as infectious as his knowledge of fossils and the formation of rock and stone is substantial. He imparts his years of experience with enthusiasm, captivating the imagination of youngsters (and oldies!) in a way that even the best of teachers could only admire. And against this backdrop, despite... More
