By far the best bit, surprisingly enough, is the rock gallery! Make sure you go right to the back there the luminescent and phosphorescent rock are!

This slightly out of the way the newly refurbed museum at Birmingham University is well worth the trip. A fun family day out for sure.

We took the family at half term on a wet day, 3 generations, and we all really appreciated what was on display. The girls, 9-13, had all studied fossils at some point and are avid collectors so it particularly appealed to them. The items are very well displayed, some are very large and the information was not overwhelming. You have to walk a bit on the university campus to find the museum but it's well worth it. We spent the morning at The Barber Institute looking at art and the afternoon at the Lapworth looking at geological artefacts. Most people have never heard of this place which is a pity. They have special events for families which we will look out for in future.

This is a small (free) museum which we found a little difficult to get to, mainly because we hadn't planned ahead where to park. I would advise all drivers to pop 'North East University car park' into their Sat Nav when approaching and save yourself an hour of driving around the area getting frustrated. However, once there, we were happy. My older son (14) loves Science and Natural History, and my younger son (10) loves Geology and dinosaurs. They found plenty of exhibits to enthrall them. I was particularly enchanted by the beautiful minerals and their many magical colours.
