5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

The social history and content of this museum is superb and it is a very poignant reminder of our social history and how peolpe were compelled to live in the past Makes you very proud to see how working class people brought about such amazing social change

“Great day out for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Brilliant day out for the family. My ten-year-old adores the Egyptian gallery and the dinosaurs and the craft activities in the downstairs room. Good shop with pocket money toys as well as more expensive items. Wonderful range of displays from all around the world, well presented and informative. Natural history stuff and live reptiles/amphibians are fascinating.

Our five year old grandson was fascinated with the dinosaurs, bows and arrows, swords and the Egyptian gallery. There's lots to do and interactive areas.
