The museum harbours a collection of minerals, fossils and other related items, displayed in the original casings since it was built, in a victorian style. Modern signs have been added to some of the displays but it still maintains the feel of what it would be like to visit an old style museum.
I totally felt like a kid as memories of my “Pre-Historical phase” started resurfacing – when I was 10 or so, one of my favourite books, that I would read and re-read was the Pre Historical volume of a Natural Sciences Encyclopedia I owned. I used to know a lot of the dinosaur names and other random critters and facts. Most of that knowledge is gone and forgotten but the sense of wonder when looking at these things isn’t.
