The museum is amazing. The exhibitions are interesting. I loved the Polar section, the blue whale skeletons, minerals. It is good for school kids to see the practical information on many subjects. The building is really beautiful and photogenic. Admission is free.

The museum is extensive and free, with plenty of interesting exhibits to explore. There is a lot of English text throughout the museum for international travellers. The Imax dome screen was an interesting experience, but try sitting farther back. We were too far forward and...More
