The renovation really helped re-envigorate this museum, which had been getting a bit dusty. It's great to visit with kids, who will gawk at the various models and specimens. It's also great to visit while the World Wildlife Photo awards are being exhibited, that's always a treat.
Such a good museum! It's quite small but the exhibits are great - interactive and informative. Spent hours there.
Such a good museum! Quite small but we spent hours there. There are lots of interactive exhibits - it's great fun!
Closed on Mondays (learned that the hard way, whoops!). With the family museum pass, admission is free. Age appropriate for kids as young as 1.5 years old. There's something for everyone to be interested in. A great way to beat the heat or cold.
Very nice museum with a variety of exhibits. Great for families with kids, even young ones. Only minor annoyance is that all the signs and explanations are only in German.
