  • An excellent museum and we visit regularly. Had a fairly unpleasant encounter at mini.mobil, a children's playground indoors. The staff seems to take the order with the toddlers way too seriously... taking a four wheeler away because of a couple nudges has crossed the line! No reason to make the 4-year old cry over that! Only a star this time
  • Every time we go there we learn something new. There are also interesting workshops.
  • Really well laid out and plenty to see. We only planned 2 hours which wasn't enough. Go during the week when it's quiet as there are quite a few interactive displays.
  • So many interesting and interactive exhibits. Highly recommended.
  • Wow. As a foreigner came from Brazil I was impressed with the size of the Museum and the variety of pieces and floors to visit. You need a minimum of 3 hours to see everything. They have luggage stores with lockers to put a jacket and pessoal items, and the place is very beautiful. It worths the value.
