Lots to learn about the local area and it’s history with some wonderful displays. There’s lovely walks surrounding the Discovery Centre too. Fun for all the family, my boys aged 13, 10 and 7 really enjoyed it.
Lovely small museum with just enough to keep a little mind interested...my 4 year old loved the displays, interactive games and stories. The new film was beautiful, inspiring and quite emotional...beautifully filmed, informative and well narrated. Definitely recommend...especially on a sunny day to go exploring outside (& if raining cafe and shop was great too!).
The Centre is beautifully located for walks in the surrounding meadows and riverside. It is a beautiful building and the shop and cafe are excellent. However, the exhibition area is quite limited and is not appropriate for pre school children. We took our three year old and the historical side of the display was lost on her. However, we thought she would find the huge, and wonderful, mammoth skeleton fascinating. Unfortunately, it is at the start of the display and as we approached, it let out a deep and rumbling roar. She was terrified and refused to go any further. She was still frightened by it as we left via the entrance as we could hear it behind us.
Ideal though for school parties to be taken in the context of history lessons and with a knowledgeable teacher.
We often take our grandchildren to Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre to do the holiday events, which they thoroughly enjoy. The museum is interesting and full of interactive activities. the children and my husband always look forward to the lunch.
