Educating People
In 2010 and 2003 the Museum was selected by The Guardian Newspaper as one of the country's Top 20 Family Friendly Museums.

In 2012 we won The Telegraph Family Friendly Museum Award and The Museums and Heritage Readers Award.

The Museum is independent and relies on the financial support of visitors and members.

This Museum was made possible because of:
Museum Founder Sir Jonathan Hutchinson
Eminent Victorian Geologist Sir Archibald Geikie
