This museum was the first of its kind the world. That said, it is very dated and could benefit from updating to more modern museum practices, interactive exhibits and so on.

The best museum of natural history I have visited till date. Suitable for ages 5 to 75 ! You can spend a couple of days at the museum if you want to immerse yourself. A minimum of half a day required.
