  • I visited this museum with my wife and 5-year-old granddaughter who is fascinated. It is very nice and innovative-the animals are hanging from the ceiling and give a feeling of amazement. It is divided into zones: museums, leisure activities for children and adults, study etc. To tell you the truth, it is not enough to see everything in detail. We were all very pleased.

  • I was with my family to see the Museum, very interesting and well structured even though it was on on 3 floors. Interesting to see the mummy is how they manage to preserve it.
