Took the kids to see the dinosaur exhibit for the last week of school holidays- very educational and had a better time than was anticipating. Gift shop was a tad pricey but overall, quite an enjoyable experience for all ages!

A wonderfully exciting exhibit that teaches about dinos this side of the world. We enjoyed it but it's over pretty quickly.

Went to an up late event for the dinosaur exhibition, was lots of fun, go on line to book the next evening. Take kids during the day, it's a great collection of dinosaurs and interesting facts.

I have been to a couple of shows here as well as just had a general wander through, it's not huge so is a nice easy visit. A lot of interesting things to see and do, I reckon it's great for young kids!
