Stone Science

Bryn Eglwys, Llanddyfnan, Pentraeth, LL75 8UL – 01248 450310

An old fashioned and quirky museum dedicated to geology and archaeology. Fascinating for anyone with an interest in fossils, dinosaurs, bones, crystals etc. The place is jam packed with artifacts and the owner is more than willing to share his knowledge and passion on his subject.
Afterwards once you are all inspired have a walk along the coastline of northern Anglesey where the carboniferous limestone cliffs contain many corals, brachiopods and crinoids for you to discover yourselves.
