As some of the comments suggest - it is a perfect kids place. Although, the collection is big, it is rather a traditional museum, with a very little interactive parts, which might be confusing in our digital, high-tech era. So, expecting a traditional museum will not lead to any dissapointment, on the contrary, one can learn a lot and admire... More

The museum might be a pleasant experience for very young kids, but it rather looks old-style, with not so impressive collections. I would rather label it as average, maybe a little bellow average...

This natural history museum is like an open book, in which you can see pictures and you can read about animals from different areas of the world. From the African savanna, to the polar regions, the museum takes you through the different habitats of animals that you can admire in beautiful dioramas. The museum is very well organized and the...

The exhibitions here have many animal models to look at, with some writing around it that is partly translated into English. Other than these exhibitions, there is nothing else other than a cafe and a small gift shop. However, there are some smaller interactive displays for younger children. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The building has amazing architecture and... More

I used to visit this museum as a kid, and it was a trip down memory lane when I recently re-visited with my daughter and small kids of friends. The displays of (stuffed) animals on the ground floor are a real eye catcher and sure to get the attention of the little ones. The displays of birds, mammals and insects... More
