We absolutely loved this experience. Dippy was even more majestic than we expected! It was really awesome to see the full size of a dinosaur and the 4 adults and 4 children (from 2-9) were mesmerised. There are some nice activities alongside the exhibit. We...More

We went to see Dippy on tour. The kids enjoyed it and brought a few things from the shop (not cheap though, £12 for a small teddy) 🤨 The kids liked that there was a play area.

Great day out especially if you need to get out of the weather. It is not a huge museum Go to London for that. But its decent. And the best part is its free.

There are a number of car parks quite close, the nearest is the multi storey on Cambridge Street, less than 5 minutes walk away. It is quite expensive during the day. We use the train as it's cheaper.

I'm not very disabled but I have difficulty walking and I found the museum very disabled friendly. The lifts are good and there's masses of space for wheelchairs
