  • Teaches you well about wood, its growth and forests with fun games and tests. Nice and helpful staff. Good place for family or school trips. There's a big hall down where everything is. Many stairs but I think there's wheelchair access to it too, not sure. Oh and scouts get in free if wearing the scout scarf!
  • Very interesting place, and student tickets were only 5 euros a piece! All kinds of interesting stuff about forests and how we are making our future greener.
  • Good infrastructure. good for kids. Need some personal assistance to explain some info otherwise a very unique science centre for forest enthusiastic.
