  • Interesting to see both for its futuristic architecture, its location, the design of its collections. A must see!

  • A thousand bravos for the expo antartiqua... see on the ice and under the ice through photographers and divers. Worth a visit for the permanent collections,.. .he leaves little time to enjoy the dance expo, and more than all (of time) for the expo shoes... Fortunately for thirty euros, I can go back throughout the year! (the simple entrance at 9th 90 annual pass will be quickly recovered.)

  • Recent but already indispensable Museum by original contemporary architecture and its themes of very open exhibitions. Content sometimes a little nerd in his presentations. ..

  • This museum is wonderful! Though we weren't able to see all of it what we saw was excellent. They have very interesting exhibit set ups that provide a nice change from standard museums and there were lots of interactive components. This was especially interesting in the natural history section which is usually just a collection of taxidermy animals. They had information about endangered and extinct animals and a lot of the animals set up by classification in an educational way. Also the building itself is fascinating. It would definitely be a good museum for families.
  • A brand new museum with both interesting permanent and temporary collections. There is a nice view on the city and the rivers from the terrace. The price is fair as well.
  • Good but not very. Pottery items of Africa of one century back and some shoes of special class. They should have included some more stuff. Unnecessarily expensive.
  • Amazing museum with modern architecture. The neighbourhood is really modern too. The museum specialises on Nature and Human culture. Great place to take children.
  • An impressive building with an impressive free entry for students. A variety of things to see to suit a variety of interests. I would recommend the stuffed animals, antarctica exhibit, and the penguins.
