  • Across a big intersection (the tram enters so far) out of old town square kitazume expand from East to West. On the East side is like a Museum of nature and science, showcases exhibits on the geology, flora and fauna, and a mix of General and specific to our region. Gold coins were unearthed during construction at West is an art space and either say, exhibitions (permanent) are worth a look. When I visited the exhibition held in an otherwise underground exhibit of migratory birds in the world, on the first floor match of the world exhibit, on the second floor exhibition exhibition chronicles the double Empire age of Franz Joseph I and the architects of Hungary macovetz and one was impressive enough. Also, migratory bird exhibit and the exhibition match was expanded and workshop materials are also for children, so depending on the project children 10 minutes might enjoy.
