  • Not long ago were in the Museum, and then stopped with the children and were pleasantly surprised. There has been a lot of new and interesting things. Honestly, kids are tired of Museum faster than we were ready to leave (children 5 years and 11 years). We booked a tour and it is possible that she was interested in older participants. Children more pleasure got from live fish and seals, and we from the story guide. Want to go again.
