    My Aunt's memory - My Aunt used to love coming here as a child, when it was still called the Hancock Museum. She would look forward to her Grandad visiting from London as they would love to go there together. When she was a teenager she worker in the cafe there each weekend.
    Our shared memory - We visit here as often as we can, and love to look at all of the exhibits (especially the animals and Egyptians). We always try to attend any special exhibitions for example a recent magical tales exhibitions, and are excited to share this place with family who visit us from other parts of the country.
