  • Very interesting, decent English translations, reasonable restaurant and a good outside picnic area.
  • Cool designs and insects/sculptures too see
  • It's good for the children My son is two years old and was very happy. People are friendly at the restaurant, reception and cleaning. We couldn't do the outdoor visit because it was too hot, maybe next time.
  • Very interactive good visit for budding entomologists ours aged 11 enjoyed it!
  • We've been here two years running, and our children love it. The termites are fantastic! Just two issues this year tho' - dog poo in the kids play area, and several of the outdoor mechanical insects not working. Maybe they need more staff to monitor the outside areas?
