We are a small charity run by our Board of Trustees and an outstanding group of volunteers to provide you with the full facilities of our museum.
Our museum was opened to the public on 13th August 2022 by our Chairman James Hogg and by Member of Parliament Gill Furniss.
We have something to offer to children of all ages. Come learn about the exciting history of the natural world and explore what the collection has to offer.
Not only are we a repository of natural history specimens, we also actively research the collection. Additionally, we provide visiting academics free access to the collection in the pursuit of advancing the sphere of knowledge.
