What a hidden gem this is. We visited one drizzly Monday as my gf and I (both in our late twenties) like a mooch around as museum, and we were bowled over by how good this place is. There are all manner of animals, most in incredible condition. There really is every kind of creature here and it's a fantastic... More

A great couple of hours, with helpful staff and loads of animals to see. Interesting on two levels, firstly the 'discovery' of these exotic animals from around the 'new' world by the Victorians and secondly the exhibits themselves, grouped into genus. Would recommend a visit to anyone with an enquiring mind.

I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would! My two-year old can't get enough of the place and now we go pretty regularly. Worth checking to see if the coffee shop is going to be open

Make sure you see the Mexican dressed flea ! The stuffed animals are very realistic displayed in their natural habitats.

We have made a point of visiting this exhibition for the past few years. We both like photography, and are usually inspired by the quality of the images. The previous 2 years were superb, but I felt this year was wanting. There were a lot of blurred, or out of focus images - yes, I get these too, but delete... More

My daughter loves to take pens and paper and sit drawing the animals. A fascinating collection and regular activities for all ages.
