Thank you for our epic trip to your museum. We had a great time and learned lots about the stone age
I really enjoyed my morning there especially as you were all really kind. When I came I learned lots which helped me loads with my school work
I saw how the stone age was soooooo long!
I think it's one of the best trips we've had ever!
A marvellous 'hands on' museum
Fantastic! Kids loved it! See you again soon!
Thank you for a fun and interesting afternoon.

Amazing collection, beautifully displayed
