Good to see the history up close and personal. The dinosaur model is amazing! Good to learn about our history and have the chance to touch.

Did you know that bison, hippopotamus, elephants roamed Cambrdige ages ago? AS well as loads of fossils and rock samples, there are some amazing things like a model of the biggest spider ever known to walk the Earth, Darwin's diaries, some real mammoth hair, endless delightful things. There are special activities for kids free of charge you can ask for. Some really big skeletons of dinosaurs. Lovely for kids I would say 6y and up. Dinosaurs for sale in the shop as well as innumerable gems. Free entry

This is great little museum packed with tons of earth science stuff. Here you can while away a good hour and its free. The gem stone section is very interesting and colourful.

I took m little boy (3 years old at the time) and he was fascinated by all the fossils and dinosaur bones. I'll definitely take my 6 year old along one day soon.

Free museum for that cool or wet day. Large quantity of Fossils and Natural History. Staff are happy to answer questions from both adults and children with children's quiz's etc.
Definitely worth a visit.
