Small centre, but they cram so much information and displays into it. Some great dinosaur stuff and the fossil shop is amazing

Interesting centre both for adults and kids, found some of the items a bit pricey but then you don't have to buy them. Spent a good half hour in there with our son he found it very interesting. Well worth a visit.

We booked a fossil guided walk for our family. The booking process was simple to do online. We started with a 20 minute talk on what to look for and safety points, then the guides led us down to the beach. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly.

Very interesting museum however small, staff are very knowledgable and there are activities for children as well as a gift shop and cinema (how to collect fossils films). Free to enter and nice to go in while you are visiting the beach.

Great resource having experts on hand to look at fossil finds. Only downside is that some of the volunteers only have basic knowledge of what is a fossil giving out wrong information when experts out on walks.

I really interesting place with lots for youngsters to do and a pretty decent cafe too. You can borrow hammers from the centre to do some fossil hunting of your own which is fun.
