This museum is like stepping back in time and I hope that they never change it. It is fascinating to see this collection and well worth the bus ride to visit it. The staff were lovely.

Nice museum to walk through and see the enormous variation of birds, the large amount of skeletons and butterflies. The museum is easy to reach as it is outside the busy centre area. Parking available. Visit takes about 45 minutes and is free.

Natural history museums have always interested me and this one was no exception. While it's a little off the beaten track (we caught a bus up there and back to the seafront afterwards), it was worth a visit. Focusing more on birds, there were a...More
