  • A very nice framework, multiple expos (vmt for everything there tastes). It comes out a little amazed with lots of things to discuss. Plan an entire afternoon we we arrived around 5 p.m. because we had not planned to go. The advantage is that at this time it is cheaper, but there are clearly of the botched visit it's a shame.

  • Visit Sunday friendly, few visitors on the noon hour. Temporary exhibitions are very interesting including "Antartica" which popularizes well current climate. With respect to the permanent exhibitions, some scenographic choices were surprising and left us on our end. The view from the roof is superb!

  • 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.
