  • An interesting visit. Lots to see. You do need to pay for entry into a few of the areas. ( Different buildings) You will need to make sure you have plenty of time. The only criticism is very limited English language. Overall a decent experience.
  • You simply must see the extinct species exhibit. A beautiful combination of science, art, education, and ethics.
  • This museum is very interesting. You could easily spend hours to visit it.
  • Great place for sketching and improving your understanding of animal morphology. Also it's free for students that are under 26years old!
  • Definately one of the most beautifull natural historic museums iv'e been.
