You cant do much better than spending a few hours roaming this museum gaining knowledge and insight. This place offers that as you make your way from fossils, to species, to planets. Most of the displays lack English translations, but audio guides are available to...More

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. 👩
