Been to the museum plenty of times, but it's been a few years and with the new #Fearless exhibition of a remarkable season, decided on a revisit. We were not disappointed.

The mummy coming out of the wall scared me, I wont lie!! Cute little shop with fun things to buy and nice coffee shop with outside seats too. Perfect for a snappy... More

The museum is mainly science and investigation based, there was a lot of history involved. Parking was brilliant and not to far to walk to the museum. We think the cafe could've been improved they had selection of sandwiches and salads. The disabled access around the museum was brilliant we could access everything in the museum.

We have been new walk museum a few times now as my little boy loves the dinosaur section. Excellent value for money trip with the children as entrance is free though donations are appreciated I'm sure and although there is a small cafe on site you don't have to purchase anything in order to sit and eat your own food....

I personally adore the art gallery upstairs. the museum... More

I have been coming to his museum for as long as I can remember and I still love it now. Personally, it is like my own little get away.
