  • A beautiful setting filled with mostly empty. The envelope is gorgeous and surfaces are mostly attributed to nothing or offices. Exhibitions are small, uninteresting and it's sometimes quite crowded. The cafeteria is tiny and noisy and the toilet soap and dry hands free! However the Museum is generally very successful.

  • See the site and the architecture. Collections are made on an aesthetic and modern, but maybe a little at the expense of the sense of what is exhibited, in my opinion.

  • Beautiful architecture, visit as a couple, interesting, well presented and fun exhibits, suitable also for children. Venus in tram stop nearby, map city pass allowing a faster entry.

  • 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.
