We found the new layout very nice. We were greeted on entering the building and given a map, and were recommended which way to move around the museum to get the most from our visit. The displays are very good and clearly labelled. The ground floor takes you from 400 million years ago up to recent times. The first floor then takes you through natural history, with a collection of big game trophies, butterflies, birds and bugs. Then world cultures, Romans, Egyptians, Aboriginals and more.
The staff were friendly and courteous. The facilities were great with free lockers (£1 deposit) for your bags, plenty of toilets, plenty of lifts including a wheelchair one. The café looked good, but unfortunately was only doing drinks and cakes as they had no chef.
They also provide a "bumble bee bag" on wheels for children to take round with them, and portable seats for older people to carry round and use.
