  • Awesome exhibits and truly huge museum. Have gone 3 times already and still haven't seen the whole thing. Some sections are currently under renovation, but what was open was very educational and entertaining for all ages. The live demonstrations and tours are worth your time.
  • Old but gold. Especially suits technology-savvy visitors. I would only recommend to visit with a guide, since it’s too big and the background stories make the things there way more interesting.
  • Massive museum. Could easily spend over 6 hours here, with own snacks(there's a restaurant too). Queue took 1 hour, dress up accordingly. The new English app is a good direction, but not yet fully implemented. The programs were interesting. Plenty to experience not only for children, but for adults, too.
  • A very big museum with very little interactive exhibits. If you are expecting a child friendly interactive museum like others around the world, don’t. English almost non existent. Head to the physics section which is fun and interactive. This place gets hot in the Summer.
  • Great museum. Download the app and see the demonstrations time. The museum is huge so plan ahead because it is not possible to see it all in one day. Must see the electricity demonstration. Good cafeteria for a quick bite.
