When I was heading to the Museum I saw this shop on the other side of the road, I was amazed by the variety of the Fossils! And they are very cheap! You also can place orders by email or phone! Like I do now as I went on holiday there, and live 200+ miles away! Heh

For us, it was a wonderful place to shop for souvenirs to bring back to our children and grandchildren. To be sure, these treasures are different than the usual T-shirts with pictures of Stonehenge,... More

There were some brilliant exhibits and some amazing items for sale, but they were a bit on the pricey side. However, still a brilliant place, well worth a look around!

This shop has just about everything, with very friendly helpful staff. It is well stocked with easily viewed display cabinets. Unfortunately a majority of the pieces we were interested in were out of our price range.
