  • Nice place to go with kids (ours are 9 &11) lots of different expositions and stuff they can do and try. When we visited the highlight was a sport and body exposition where the boys could do all kind of sports(games). The only downside was that it was very hot (and it was only mid-April. So can only imagine how crazy hot it must be in summer. The park around it is also nice and has lots to offer for smaller kids. It also has various restaurant and outdoor terrace.
  • Very good exhibition - unfortunately I observed when sitting down that the staff in cafe Biosphere were speaking consistently rudly to people with little customer service, even when they weren't busy (especially the medium-height lady working on the 22nd of August in the afternoon, she had light brown hair and ponytail!) However, the interactive exhibitions were fantastic and has a great choice of languages.
