  • It is kind of a weird experience: while parts of the museum feel very old (e.g. the corridor displaying avian taxidermy and study skins), other exhibition spaces, such as the discovery zone and the Hall of Botany, are filled with enjoyment and enlightenment. Actually, even the older halls are packed with great information (they could be overwhelming in places, though). Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • The museum is very interesting to explore. Decent space to walk around and enjoy sightseeing. Cafes are good stop, clean space and they are busy most of the time. The tickets worth the price :-) would recommend anyone to visit the kids will love this place and kids zone is well organized and thoughtful
