I visited with my 7 year old daughter and we both had a great time... interactive museum with information about the earth, it's inhabitants and Darwin's theory about the evolution. Cave men and early species.. stuffed animals but nothing creepy :)

Liked: great Collection of animals from around the world; good introduction to theory of evolution. Even the youngest chilldren will find interesting things to see. However: not so much information in English; the cafeteria was a bit disappointing
