  • Ok I am a rock nut , the museum is a private collection and as such shows this the exhibits are a bit stale and in need of serious overhauling but that costs a lot so no surprise the cost of admission...  more »
  • Waste of £16, in and out in 10 minutes, children are 4 and 9 and bored. Looks really good on the website. Really Overpriced.  more »

  • Not nearly as big as I thought from the advertising. Lots of crystals and replica fossils but presented in an unimaginative way. Shop was good though.
  • Great wee stop along the way. One of the greatest collection of earth stones I've seen. Local mining history was particularly interesting.
