If you are the least bit quirky (like myself), you'll dig this place. Yes, many of the items do not have English labels. Yes, there is a certain level of chaos in this place. Yes, some of the exhibits will make you go, "Huh?" And...More

We were staying across the road so visited this "museum" on our first day. We had walked around in 10 minutes and we were totally confused afterwards. It wouldn't be so bad if it was free entry.

Not far from city center, interesting exposition even for a small baby, worth 2 hours of your time...

Worth a visit. Rather like a Museum combined with natural history, an aquarium and a zoo rolled into one. Cheap entry and lots of information also in English.
