This is a very beautifully designed museum with a lot of things to do; we went with a friend of ours who is a biologist, and she loved it too. There is also lots of things to do for children, and the T-Rex is awesome.

A very well organised and structured display with "Trix" the T-Rex skeleton being the obvious highlight. Plenty of interactive areas to keep younger ones interested, and overall a fine exhibit. Entry fee is moderate, but you can certainly appreciate that this is not a cheap...More
