Booth Museum of Natural History

The Booth Museum of natural history houses over half a million insects, skeletons and birds and the infamous merman which is a fake from the Victorian era but was highly regarded back then! There are also the 140 million year old bones of a dinosaur to be seen which generally wows the children so it is well worth a visit.

Edward Booth contributed a life times worth of birdlife to the museum along with over 650 butterfly types and a huge collection of bone and fossils dating back to the age of dinosaurs. There is an interactive gallery and a host of different events throughout the year.

Admission is free and the museum is open from 10am to 5pm through the week and from 2pm to 5pm on Sundays and Bank holidays.
