Interesting museum, rip-off gift shop.
Oct 2021
Interesting museum, especially if you have a child interested in crystals as we do. A bit expensive to get in but you can get your ticket validated to come back anytime within the week. The gift shop is doing a "lucky bag" promotion, where you can get a free surprise bag if you spend £20, or 2 if you spend £30, 3 if you spend £40 (you get the idea.) My 10 yr old son wanted the lucky bag so chose to buy a stone at £19.99 so he would get one. When he went to pay, he was told by the lady serving that he would have to buy something else with it if he wanted the lucky bag as it has to be £20, not £19.99...
We left feeling completely ripped off, and what started as nice visit turned into a 'would not return'

Interesting and unusual

Although this only a very small museum, I did find it very interesting and unusual. It was a good way to spend a wet hour. Nice gift shop too.

Bit expensive but glad I went in (without my hubby)
Jul 2021
I thought it was a bit expensive (no concessions?) to get in especially with my husband and he declined to go in as he also thought too expensive for two people, but I paid the fee. To be honest there was a lot to view if you were really interested in looking and going over everything, but I kind of did it in a rush, though beautiful gems. The little shop attached was good for trinkets and gifts.

Honestly a very good museum with many interesting things to see. They have an extensive collection, kind staff as well as a very good giftshop. We got free gifts after spending over £40, and I now proudly own dinosaur poop.

Very interesting

A small ‘museum’ displaying many interesting crystals and fossils etc. Well worth visiting and a good gift shop where you can purchase authentic items. Recommended

Adequate but rather expensive for the time taken to visit.

We visited this in June, it was more than £20 for a family of 3 and we were through it in about 10mins so would say it’s expensive for what you get, although it was a fun visit. We visited it years ago and I don’t think it has had its exhibits updated in those intervening years. Would only recommend if you are on the area anyway.

Good

It's okay. Some interesting things. Not very big and a bit overpriced at £7 a person. Took less than an hour to look round (I dawdled trying to get my moneys worth). Gift shop is very expensive. They gave us a weeks pass for the £7 but it's not somewhere you'd go twice.
