  • Were with a child 7 years. Do not regret about visiting, but we felt a little bored. Not interesting exhibits are described. Interested in several expositions. Very striking cm dust everywhere. At the output of the saw for job quests, as upon entering nobody warned. I think with such a game would be more interesting to visit the Museum.

  • Certainly your children love dinosaurs! Definitely go with them in the paleontological museum. It's a great place here will not be bored nor you nor your children. A unique Exposition is very accessible to perception as older children and primary school and preschool age (somewhere from 5 years, depending on the progress of your child) my nephew already in 5 years learned by heart by book title and all the dinosaurs, while the Museum rushed a bullet from one exhibit to another burly striking Museum workers that he knew them all)
