  • For the cheap entry fee, the museum was excellent! It has just the right amount of exhibits for the space available on the ground level and first floor and it was an interesting and fun way of beating the harshest midday summer sun. I had to subtract one star though as quite a few parts of the exhibition were in the process of being reconstructed. Overall though, a really solid museum.
  • Love this museum! Lots of dinosaur bones, taxidermy animals … great place for kids!
