  • Nice small exhibition of a lot of stuffed animals and skeletons. Free entrance, no guide or tour except a small paper, but everything explains itself. A lot of interesting animals. We enjoyed our visit for about an hour. There is a 3D pork puzzle for the kids, and also some drawing pictures. Toilets available.
  • Small but well organised museum in the heart of one of the University departments. Not easy to find!
  • Quite interesting but if you have seen it have you really seen.
