Very interesting architecture from outside. Inside is a bit too dark sometimes. A very modern and rich museum mainly aiming at knowlegable adults.

Went there with 2 kids of 2 and 5. It was less accessible for the small one but the older one had a great time! I did as well! Great temporary exhibition about venenus animals: snake, spiders and others! I recommend on a rainy day!

The Blue Museum was definitely the highlight of our trip. The collection is very interesting. The museum is divided into sections where each one represents an era on earth. You move through the eras in increasing order of years until you reach the animals, plants, and rocks sections at the end. All sections contain these display tables with models of... More

The best part of the museum was the dangerous snakes, spiders and frogs sections. Unfortunately didn't get to see the other bits as got there too late and they had already closed that area of the museum but definitely a good natural science musem.

The museum is not very big and not very rich. The builiding , itself, is far more interesting and beautiful.

The main exhibits are based on the development of the earth and it's geology and life. Some interesting audio-visual displays, and I liked the dark interior. Our family all enjoyed the special exhibition about the world's most poisonous creatures, 50 of them on live display. Curious that there were no exhibits from Australia.

As my son said its like going into the Millenium Falcon as you walk in underneath. Our 5 year old was free and as he was with us it was even cheaper. With the special exhibition it was €10 for the 3 of us. The special exhibition was the most venimous creatures on the planet with 50 live ones. This... More
