  • Too sad to write a complete review. But what can you expect for 3 euro p.p. The animals come very hungry, and the stays are sad. It was just too pathetic to watch long.

They can advertise better with the museum, which was worth the money.

  • It is obvious that this place has seen better days. Still the people who work there seem to be trying their best to make the most of what they still have. For the price I was quite impressed with what was on display. Definitely worth a visit.
