Especially in the field of biology and physics there are interesting things to see (although the exposition makes a somewhat dated impression). For example, there are a lot of pots in all kinds and sizes with mainly. Human embryos on strong water and also a lot of skeletons of all kinds of animals, but little or no information is indicated. Furthermore, in the field of senses there is a nice possibility for children (from primary school age) to do all kinds of nice experiments in a special department. In The Hortus we only threw a cursory glance because there was not so much special on show (mid March). We keep that for a next visit.
Very nice museum. Not too big but very interesting. Also a nice garden, Cafe and botanic small garden. I would suggest it for adults and kids above 7 as some of the area are quite raw and shocking for young kids
Some slightly scary, but super interesting samples of scientific history. There's also a beautiful botanic garden that is well worth a few hours. At the top floor there's a lab where kids can do experiments.
