The collection in this museum is unexpectedly huge. Especially the mineral collection kept me there for at least one hour. It's a wonderfully curated space ensemble. Definitely worth a visit.

Decided to visit since we had time. Two story museum and I think it is small compared to some of the other Natural History Museums.
