  • Generally a nice place, but it really depends on what you want to see. They have an amazingly made old world elephant in the uppermost floor together with some cool skeletons and teeth. However it is a bit much text and less to actually see. The second floor however is much better, having many real human skeletons you can see, their cause of death and similarity to us now is just amazing. I am a fan of 'show don't tell', that's why it only gets 4 stars. The shop is not very good, they have unicorns which is weird because it is a scientific museum.
  • A very interesting and well thought up Museum wish I had taken the translator headphones as it is limited with English explanation. For the price of 1p euros for a family of 4 it is will worth a visit. Easy to get to with the tram system too.
