Guildford's Museum of Natural History has been a popular tourist attraction in Guildford for over 40 years. You can find it on James Street in the middle of town. You can't miss it. Just look for the giant dinosaur out the front.
If your kids love dinosaurs you've gotta bring them here
The Museum of Natural History is home to hundreds of taxidermy displays of native Australian animals, birds, fish and reptiles. There are dinosaurs as well. The exhibits are the work of one of Australia's leading taxidermists, Michael Buzza.
This place is crammed with goodies from top to bottom
Michael only works on animals that have died of natural causes. All of his animals have been reproduced with a lot of patience and love and care. He is committed to fair and ethical practices and often works in conjunction with the Department of Parks and Wildlife to help protect and conserve the environment.
The Museum of Natural History is a great place to bring kids. It is just a five minute walk from the Guildford Train Station. Admission is $2 for children and $5 for adults. The whole place is packed from top to bottom with weird and wacky objects.
There are displays hanging from the ceiling and covering every inch of the walls. Wander past dinosaurs as tall as people and cabinets filled with skulls. All of these oddities are housed in a heritage listed former theatre. Mums and dads and children of all ages will find something in this place to interest them. I had fun taking photos of the dinosaurs.
Michael Buzza's animal pieces are held in such high regard they are regularly hired out by schools, museums, video and film production houses and marketing companies to be used for promotional or educational purposes. Information about hire costs is listed on his website.
