  • It's a smaller museum, but there are a lot of animals on exhibit. Exhibits are broken down by biome with descriptions of each and a map is provided to help identify animals. There is a 2-part video ab...  more »
  • Small place and a little expensive. There is a gift shop, a kind of cinema and the area for the tour. But you do gain knowledge if you aren't too familiar with the subject about animals in general.  more »

  • Visited the museum a couple o years ago, never went back. I had a 1,5 yrs old at the time, we had a guard behind us all the time, he seemed nervous of having a small kid on the exhibits, it was unconfortable. Nice museum, beautiful exhibits but overpriced
  • Good place to bring the kids, very clean, it has a nice variety of animals on display, but it needs a better presentation for the names because it's hard to read the map (like a guess game)
  • Excellent for the Family and children. Very good for school tours. It is a pretty place to go.
  • Animal exhibit was beautiful, don't get me wrong. However, not worth it's price of admission for only two floors. Which, despite what Google estimates, did not take 2hrs. More like 20mins for both floors without a tour.
  • Arrived around lunch time. Payed the entrance fee. Without a tour, it took us about 25 minutes to walk around the first and second floors. Underwhelming to say the least. Maybe if you took the tour (class there and we weren't with a large group) it would be more worth it.
