Great morning spent looking for fossils with Richard from Lyme Regis Museum. He was informative and very friendly. We found some fossils and Richard cracked open a rock or two and gave us his finds! Well worth booking a fossil walk with the experts. This was the second we had booked that week (the first was with FossilWalks), also very good and well worthwhile. It's fun to look for the fossils and very addictive but go with an expert and you will be informed what and where to look as well as some important safety advice. We will be back.

The museum was closed the day we visited Lyme Regis, but we did enjoy a brilliant fossil walk with the museum geologist Paddy Howe. Despite it being the worst time of year for fossil hunting, we went home with some great finds (for us novices, anyway). It was all down to Paddy. He is knowledgeable, fun and was extremely patient with our four-year-old. Thank you, Paddy!

We booked a fossil walk through the museum. It was the highlight of our week in Lyme Regis. This was mainly down to Paddy the guide. He was a wealth of knowledge & very good with our two children. We found many fossils with his help & he passed on any of his finds to the children. One of these fossils was an ichthyosaur jaw bone which is now pride of place in my son's collection. It was a fantastic afternoon spent & thoughly recommended.

We love this place. So many things to see and so much of Lyme Regis history under one roof. The fossils are our favourite. Can’t wait to return!

Interesting fossil exhibits and local history. Friendly staff. The museum is set inside a lovely, quirky building, with an amazing view from the room at the top, across the bay to the Cobb. We were given a discount voucher for the cafe a Aroma, across the street and the ticket last for a year to the museum.
