I knew plenty about Charles Darwin but virtually nothing about his grand-father Erasmus so I was eager to visit this museum & find out more. It was a joy - giving a warts an' all picture of this great C18th Enlightenment scientist. Excellent introductory video presented by Adam Hart-Davis then the various rooms illustrate the different aspect of Darwin's life. At reception you can buy books & memorabilia. Outside is a charming garden divided into 'rooms', each one planted out with herbs relevant to Darwin's interests.
A 'must visit' particularly for any would be scientists.

Prior to our visit to Dr Johnston's Birthplace, in Lichfield, we had visited his home in London, off Fleet Street.

The story of how he met his wife and the age gap! It was fascinating to be aware that "May - December" relationships had, always, been in existence.

During our visit to Licfield, we came across a Tour Guide Jonathan Oates, very knowledgeable about the area - he took us around to the Medieval Cathedral - it was love on first sight!
