Once you have ordered your pack please email to arrange a collection slot. Please don't come to the Museum with out contacting us first. Collection from outside the Museum will be available from 24/06/2020 Tuesday to Friday depending on staff availability.


The glass jars are repurposed and the fossils are hand cast. As such there will be slight variations between packs. We use recycled materials to keep the pack costs down for you and the planet.

Hygiene & Coronavirus

Packs will be prepared by one member of staff wearing gloves and a face covering, and materials with hard surfaces will be wiped over. We recommend you also take your own additional precautions, especially if a member or your house hold is in the higher risk group.
