I kept reading great things about this museum here on trip advisor and eagerly awaited it's re-opening a mere two weeks before my UK visa expiry date and it was definitely well worth the wait!
I went on a Saturday, but I believe it is usually open on weekdays only. It was wonderful, it was really interesting to see the specimens that scientists from over 100 years ago used to learn from. Some of the specimens are sadly now extinct and are for that reason quite rare. I especially liked the Tasmanian Tiger and the Dodo bird remains. The place is really like a step back in time, a historical snapshot if you will.
Besides the historical factor it also has the curiosity factor as you never know what you will find. Anything from a jar of pickled moles to a hippopotamus skull!
I went by myself, but there was a lot of people with kids there and you could tell that they loved it. I think it's a great place for everybody and best of all it's free!
