What a treasure trove of fossils, minerals and native artefacts! If you or your children are budding scientists (or just like rare exhibits) then this is a worthwhile stopover. Just make sure you use the details on their website to find them and not just the postcode, or you'll end up down a country lane (like we did!). It's a really nice stop over and close to other attractions. The people who run it a very friendly and knowledgable. They have a great gift shop too! Thoroughly recommended.

Once again, a fantastic visit with plenty to see (and buy!). I've been visiting this museum on and off for over 30 years, first with my wife, then as a family with my kids, last year with our grandchildren and yesterday with one of my daughters. There's always plenty to catch one's imagination and the shop at the end has plenty of interesting objects at pocket money prices, as well as some more expensive tempting fossils. Come with an open mind and enjoy a chat with the owner at the end, who engages children and adults with his knowledge. Best place in N Wales in my opinion.

Excellent morning in this treat of a museum that is packed with fascinating items. The kids in particular loved this place, browsing the myriad objects and even asking the very informative (and patient) owner lots of questions. The museum is what might be considered ‘old school’ but that is one of the things that makes it so special. The museum has good physical distancing measures (due to Covid-19) especially if guests are able to use some common sense. Don’t forget to visit the cave. The shop is a treasure trove of reasonably priced stones and fossils that will suit most children’s pocket money allowances. Thanks for a lovely morning. If the museum is busy you may be asked to wait outside in your car for a short while. Card payments accepted.

If you like an eccentric local attraction as much as we do you will love Stone Science. Our big group of kids really enjoyed doing the quiz and the gift shop is extraordinary. The chap who set it up didn’t buy most of the exhibits in the museum - he found them himself! Well worth a visit

We came not knowing what to expect. From the outside, the building gives no clue to what lies inside. A mammoth (literally!) collection of fossils, crystals and other geological wonders will amaze and intrigue the children. A huge amount of time and effort has gone into the information sheets that accompany the displays, even though they are somewhat dated. The proprietor is knowledgable and friendly (so is his dog Zac!) and there is a gift shop with something to suit everyone’s budget!
