What travelers say:

We visited the museum following an appointment with one of our children at the Children's hospital, which is a short walk down the road. They currently have a creepy crawly exhibition on the top floor, and during half term had free craft activities linked to this. We popped in for 1.5 hours and had a good look around all the levels. There is a lift, and you're encouraged to leave prams on the ground floor in a pram park to avoid congestion, as there seems to be only 1 lift. The highlights are the huge whale skeleton, and the t-rex skeleton on the ground floor. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
