    Free entry so worth a visit but much has not been kept up to date. Lots of broken exhibits and stuff that doesnt work shame. Basement great for kids age 2 to 6. Food is pricey but there are benches

    If everyone could leave their children at home that would be great. Museum looks like kindergarten

    Avoid the "Atmosphere" exhibit at all costs. The Exhibit being sponsored by Shell means that they're presenting highly skewed positions on Global Warming.

    Can spend the whole day there, but the cafeteria on the first floor is terrible, to say the least.

    While they close at 6, they really start kicking you out in no uncertain terms starting at 5.30. I even got kicked out of the shop at 5.45. No tourist £s for you! :-p

    It's free but they put the heavy guilt trip on you when you arrive. Suggesting £20 as a donation to us!

    Don't like that they now make you line up to demand a voluntary donation to get in. Remember you can say no.

    The actual information is aimed at children and people who aren't very scientific, but the activities are fun and good for families.
