Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom
November 29, 2003
It is free, but they do ask for donations, as it is entirely funded on voluntary contributions and staffed by volunteers. There are gifts available, of course - postcards, videos, jewellery, greeting cards, cuddly toys, etc., all with local wildlife themes. They also have information on local whale-watching trips.
I highly recommend this place. Okay, it won't provide a full day's entertainment, but this is highly informative, set out in an easily accessible and interesting way, and it benefits the local wildlife a lot. If you don't know a lot about sea mammals, you will learn a lot.
