What a great place. Be prepared to spend some time here. Lots to see. A replica of the ships cabin used by Joseph Banks on his travels to Australia. Visit the nearby Banks Garden and see examples of some of the plants he collected. There are very informative displays covering local wildlife, including birds, plants and insects. Collections made by Old Etonians on their travels also feature. Suitable for children of all ages and adults alike. You really will enjoy your visit, and its free..!
I have visited the museum twice, it is a hidden gem, there is so much crammed into this amazing find, and it is free to get in. You could easily lose yourself in the history the artefacts, I highly recommend a visit. Even the building the museum in housed in is awesome.
