  • Great natural history museum for young and old crowds. It presents exhibits from all over the world with a bit more depth on local habitats and animals, of course. The tickets are cheap as well as the shop that you can visit at the end. All the electronics that were there to enhance the experience were not working when we visited and appeared to be broken for a while, not sure why they’re not fixing them.
  • Everything was excellent here. A lot of exhibits, well organized and good amount of information about animals from all around the world. There was also a nice temporary exhibition with live reptiles and tarantulas. I think this is the best natural science museum that I've ever visited.
