Clarissa Dixon-Wright in the Dailymail:
The figure from history for whom you’d most like to buy a pie and a pint… Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin’s grandfather. He had all the ideas about evolution long before Charles. He’s a great unsung hero.
We thought you might like to hear some comments from previous visitors. All of these have been left in the visitors book by members of the public. Enjoy!
Spell-binding – very informative and enjoyable. Made me want to learn more about Erasmus.
Excellent balance of exhibition – audio-guide and artefacts for adults, interactive displays for children
We enjoyed it very much – loved the dressing up!
A beautiful home and important museum
A great pleasure to visit such an inspiring place
A genius rediscovered at last!
Fascinating man, fascinating house and beautiful gardens – all must visit
A place to tell your friends about
Excellent visit – will be back with friends
Wish I had known about this place before as I have visited Lichfield many times
