  • When it snows, the solution is to go to a museum. This one is extraordinary beauty and replenishment. You walk in the middle of all these sea creatures that reach some impressive sizes! They are all reproduced actual size, which for a child must seem gigantic.

  • These animals are in paper mache, but they are life-size! They are really impressive! Upon arrival, you can (or rather should) download an app on your phone with free wifi to follow the expo. Too bad the app did not work on my phone because the explanations are clear and very interesting. The entry fee is expensive (20 euro) and there will be 1 hour. Tea or coffee free at the end.

  • Even if the entry is quite high, so it is very worthwhile in any case. The realistic reproductions of the whale are absolutely worth seeing! It's a really nice feeling to go through under the whales. In addition, the labels are very informative

  • The only exhibit where you can be in awe of such huge old and ancient creatures. There is no reason for the negative comments at all. If your economics can't handle the cost admission, go somewhere else. I get no sense that this price was out of proportion to the experience and dedication of the exhibit staff. It was a good value.
  • If you like to learn about whales, or just if you like to learn while on vacation, do not skip this exhibit. scale models of whales, a VR experience and really good coffee to end the whole thing.
  • A great place for a quick stop on a rainy day. But be sure to be there early if you like a less crowded place. A lot of information and friendly staff!
  • Great place to take kids. Just seeing the size of the animals. A lot of interactive material where you can learn interesting facts.
  • We were desperately disappointed! The „Museum“ is more a big hall, where life-size models of the whales a hung up next to boards of information’s. We expected obviously a bit more enthusiasm and love in this work (like showing teeth, skeletons, itinerary and models for kids/adults for a better understanding). We and our 7 year old whale-loving son were terribly bored. The entrance fee is way over the limit!! :-(
