The exhibitions are great. The shop is fine too. The food is as usual, but if you are hungry, it is ok. Out there is a collection of different rocks and it is very interesting to check them all.

The attraction is excellent for children of all ages. Lots for them to see and do; most of it hands on. However the food prices are outrageous. €14.90 for a burger and a child size portion of fries.

I chose weekend for visiting this place. Too crowded so I couldn't do or see all the activities. I missed more interaction or explanation from the staff to the customers to learn from the visit.
