This is a wonderful Museum that occasionally offers amazing parties. It teaches you all about animals around the world and is free Thursday evenings.

Been here twice with the family and everyone enjoyed it. Lots of the displays have interactive components and the dioramas are excellent.

I visited here trying to find something to kill time while on a business visit on my own. I was very pleased to have come. I had a great time and learnt a lot. It's full of kids which is actually quite inspiring rather than annoying. The exhibits here are great and the information provided is really informative. It's certainly something for all ages.

a very nice museum easy to visit, great pedagogy and it was amazing to see so many live animals compared to usual "dead" stuff in any regular museum

Great for families. We take our grandkids several times every year and there is always something new to enjoy or explore.
