A nice museum to visit at give the kids an opportunity to observe and discover the animal kingdom. The organization is adequate and the variety of animals respectable.

We visit this museum regularly, me and my son who is now 6. There is free admission and you can walk either fast or slow through the different floors. Nice activity with children.

With young kids, we cannot find a better place to entertain kids (and parents) without any entrance fees. The museum is organized by floor and each floor is fairly large and has a theme. The collection is complete. Definitely a must do with kids.!

Total rubbish- half the animals don't look like they were ever real. Over 2 floors- we were there for half hour max. Good job it was free!
