Here are some comments from the Museum's Visitor Book

“Excellent display, much better than the Natural History Museum, London”

Lever family - Henley on Thames, Oxon

“Brilliant idea, well thought out, plenty to do, see and touch!”

Brinded family - Worthing, Sussex

“Very educational but also entertaining. 2yr old – 30 year old thoroughly enjoyed one & a half hours”

Stimpson Family - Great Yarmouth, Norfolk

“We travelled from Wells today to visit the museum with our 3yr old son and 2yr old daughter and I wanted to let you know what a brilliant time we all had. The children loved the dinosaur models (and the fact that they could touch them!), and we will be letting our friends know what a great time we had. Thank you!”

Jane - Wells

“Lovely for Families”

C.Towsend - Parkstone, Dorset

“Lovely, interesting and informative museum. My son had a lovely time on his 4th birthday. Thank you.”

T.Sambrook - West Sussex

“Very interesting and informative. Never too old to learn more about natural history.”

Valerie - London

“Had a wonderful time and found the Museum interesting and informative. It was also interactive enough for my 2yr old to keep entertained and interested. Thank you.”

Mrs Adams - Braintree

“Great for all of us. My son 5yrs was absorbed. Loved the interactive piece. He also much preferred the Cinema for content than the 'imax' at the Natural History museum. Liked the fun sheets too!”

Jo - Portsmouth

“Excellent! Full of interest for all ages - high level and low level information.”

Carla - Taunton, Somerset

“Plenty of varied, easy to read, interesting facts and demonstrations.”

Ms Pearsall - Dudley

“Very informative hands on exhibition great for children. Excellent video. Deceptive from the outside - didn't think we could spend a few hours here!”

Sarah - Braintree

“A bit too busy! Very good, kids loved it.”

Rebecca - Norfolk

“Very interesting but it would be appreciated if people were stopped from taking photos in the museum as some are very selfish, unappreciative and cheeky about it. They are also in the way.”

J.L. Elvy -

“For about 7 years, our 2 daughters now 9 and 12 have to come here every year as part of our yearly Dorset holiday. Always something new to see! Cute dinosaur T-shirts for girls/teens would be good!”
