  • Cool museum good know some history of chemistry and they got some amazing academic event that's dummy friendly
  • This is a must see after the historical areas. Even as an engineer I leared so many interesting tidbits.
  • As a chemistry major, I found this exciting. Additionally as someone interested in textiles and dyes there was a lot of information that informed that interest too. I would highly recommend it. It is small and a bit simplified, but still exciting. Additionally, a few historically important instruments are here, which were pretty amazing to see.
  • The exhibits in the museum were detailed and well explained. The whole building has a modern feel to it. Was there for a conference session and the rooms were comfortable and well equipped. The only issue we had was that the wireless wasn't ready for the amount of traffic our group produced.
  • Ok, so you really need to be a nerd to like this sort of place but that's my thing. They have a small museum of chemistry with interesting exhibits throughout the history of chemistry. It doesn't take long, so it's a nice place to stop if you have an hour to spare.
