  • Relatively small, easy to reach, and best of all free entrance. The interactive learning installations are from the last century technologically, but the kids still enjoyed it.
  • This is one of my favourite places in the whole city for the rainy days, or when you don't know what to do. The standard exhibit is always great to see, and all the special exhibits they do are amazing. Right now (Jan/2019) there's a lovely little section on bugs and their importance to our lives. This is a specially nice place to take kids. And, hey! It's free! Yes, all of it!
