The aquarium and zoological museum are very interesting and both have a good collection. The section all about coral is very interesting. But as a university museum, it is much more of an old school academic museum than a modern hands on experience, so may...More

The aquarium is well presented and clearly labelled, although relatively small. The museum is a natural history museum, with a clear trend towards zoology and the feel of a University collection, which it actually is. The building is the Zoology Department of the University, some...More

Not big, but beautifully presented and labelled. Displays includes full information in four languages. Lots of benches for adults to sit and steps for children to climb. There are a few small tanks on the side of the stairs. Look for the African clawed frog...More
