A great museum with history of the area and some great fossils. Getting a history explained before starting the tour made it much more interesting. Not the largest museum but still lots to see. Great for kids with interactive games

A small museum with a niche audience but well worth visiting just the same. Well presented and caters for children with same basic interactive activities. Be aware the 'world-class' used in the advertising refers to the fossil findings and not the museum itself. Easy to spend an hour checking out the museum.

Well presented exhibition of fossilised fishes. The explanations of time period help to grasp the context of how old they really are.
There is a fair bit of reading but there are also activities should the kids get bored

This was not my cup of tea at all but a very well orchestrated museum showcasing fish fossils from the local area. We beleive in supporting all rural towns so went in .

As they even said - if it were dinosuars they would be knocking back visitors.

I think it ideal for families with young children.

Small specalised museum but well laid out and a fascinating story, lovely group of ladies manning the front deck pointed us in the right direction to get the most out of the display

When you go to other museums to look at fossils, the fossils are treated as artefacts, stored behind glass so that you can only look at them like frozen time. But in The Age of Fishes Museum, all of that is stripped away and you get a feel of living history. The museum is hands-on (but clean hands only!) and they present you with the actual fossil slabs, and beside them is a latex cast made from the slab so that you can see the fossilised animals in 3D with all their scales and eye-holes cand armor plates, and nearby is a colour picture or even an animation of these animals as they might have looked and moved. It was an absolute joy to touch these slabs and casts and feel textures from the past.

Perhaps one of the things I respect most about this museum is that it's clearly designed to engage young people, but in a way that respects their intelligence and curiosity, not in a pandering or simplifying way. For my girlfriend and I, who were very excited to let the inner children out, the museum was utterly captivating. The gift shop is also excellent, with an unexpectedly good collection of minerals and fossils are very good prices. My only complaint is that they didn't sell plushies of any of their fossil fishes, because I would have liked to buy a plushie Groenlandaspis toy.

We spent a good couple of hours here looking and reading about the fish fossils found in the surrounding area. Very interesting and a fun place for children to visit due to it's hands on exhibits for kids.
