An excellent collection full of interesting and informative exhibits. Especially the exhibitions that change, are always well done!

Olivia O'Sullivan

I always try to visit whenever I am in the area. I find the collections fascinating and accessible - you do not have to be a specialist of the subject to understand the exhibits. They have the perfect combination of interactive exhibits and visual displays, I particularly like the 'Life, Genes and You' exhibition. Phenomenal!
