    Interesting place where visitors get to be very interactive. There are lot of things to try, and it is suitable for both large and small. Of us was my second cousins, the youngest at 1.5 years and she seemed to like to be part of some of the things:) There were two special exhibitions where you needed a card from the reception area to get into. But it was just to download.

    One of the best science museums I have visited. Huge selection of topics and great interactive displays. Kids can do so much here from knitting a giant sock to playing with a crane.
