Treasures of the Earth Reviews
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.
