  • It's interestingly old museum in an old building with another museum of Antiquities next door. Both free. Lots of children were at the Natural History Museum shouting, running bc of school break...  more »
  • It's unlike anything we have in North American and it's also free! You will see birds, mammals, fish, insects, aquatic life and fossils. The museum is frozen in time and is unique.  more »
