On a very rainy afternoon of child minding in the half term holiday, we decided to revisit the museum and let our grandchildren take part in the Easter Egg Hunt in the main museum house, which is free, after which we visited the Lego Brick Dinosaurs exhibits, which cost us £8.50 for a family ticket.
A very good afternoons entertainment for everyone, thoroughly enjoyed and good value for money, after which we treated ourselves in the very pleasant on site cafe.
Well worth checking on forthcoming exhibits and events, a visit here is highly recommended.

Went on a soggy rainy day in the school holidays. Had a Easter egg hunt on in the museum which made it great fun for the kids.
Lovely little museum that was free to get in.
Also visited the art and craft workshop that was real fun for the kids, a couple of quid for the kids to paint their own money box or dinosaur.
Didn't have time for the owl sanctuary or life boat mumuem, but looked good.
Cafe was very busy but a nice selection of food.
Great adventure playground for the kids too.

It was a soggy wet day and we needed somewhere to go.

We whiled away a couple of hours poking around the rooms. There seemed to be something for all ages and snippets of interesting information to capture everyone's attention.

There are plenty of picnic tables outside for use in drier weather so it would be easy to spend longer here in the summer.

The exhibitions are changed throughout the year so will possibly visit again in the future.

The best thing is it's free and although they don't have their own coffee shop there is a lovely little one in the courtyard.

Make sure you see the Alms houses before you go.

Wasn't sure if I would enjoy this visit, but a wet and cold Easter weekend ensured I wanted to be inside, very interesting and thoroughly recommend

Free parking with a great park for kids to play in, there's an awesome fountain outside which looks like a flower and the building itself is stunning. The staff are friendly and the exhibits are interesting, what more can you ask for really?
