We enjoyed our time in the museum. The dinosaur display is cleverly presented in that you get a good feel for the size of these ancient animals. When we did a city bus tour, the commentary said that this is one of the leading natural...More

Most of the items in the dinosaur section were replicas of things in other museum. This was a little disappointing. Large sections of stuffed animals also god a bit boring. The bones of "Lucy" (which I believe were original) were impressive.

This museum attracted me because of the Lucy replica they have on display. After seeing that, the only way to describe it is a large taxidermy hall. Many, many stuffed animals of many kinds, all in static displays. There are dinosaur bones reassembled in a...More

The museum is great for families with small children, even if it takes quite some time to go through all areas. It has a great collection and manages to keeps children interested. You can get around with English in all areas of the museum.

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
