This museum has several million species on exhibit and the Planet Earth display is especially wonderful. Its excellent for kids and adults will also enjoy it. The location is far out near the Olympic beach area but it is easily accessible by bus or metro.

It charted all the elements that contribute to the biosphere of life with more to see than to read. Probably not enough for a trained scientist. All exhibits in English too. Amazing building. Randomly they also gave me a free yogurt when I left!

I love visiting museums of nature and science. When I was visiting this one, it's expo was about food. It is not great of the greatest as the one in Denver, but it is nice to be visited with kids. I liked very much the architecture. On Sundays it has free entrance from 3 PM.

It is a standard nature museum. It has lots of interesting things but IMHO it lack some interactivity. Lots of stuffed animals and minerals. Some videos. I loved the mechanical animals at the entrance.

What an interesting visit, also the kids liked it. There was a great collection of animals, that was the best part for me. The atmosphere of the museum was exciting with the dark walls. The outer architecture of the building was interesting (extremely modern), but the area wasn't that interesting. But that's a side issue. If you want to save... More

Stumbled across the museum a short walk from our hotel. Great for a rainy day, found the atmosphere very relaxing with subdued lighting and music. Kids will love the interactive sections. Reasonable entry fee, think it was about €7 per adult. City tour bus stop is across the road so easy to visit. Display descriptions are in Spanish and English.
