So cheap, so much to see and do. We were there for two hours and could have stayed much longer. The range of animal species on show was pretty impressive as was the hands on exhibits. A really impressive place.

We really loved this museum. It is a bit out of the city, but it is definitely worth to check it out. The fee is pretty low, I am not a fan of banks, but what a great cause they support here. Lot of interactive "experiments", toys, fun way to observe the power of nature. The most amazing part for... More

Three generations of our family were captivated by CosmoCaxia. You'll need half a day to really get the full value of what is on offer. The entrance fee is very cheap. Don't forget to book the planetarium show when you arrive. Our cashier forgot to mention it and we missed out - my son was disappointed but we'll return on... More

The museum has many hands on experiments and children as well as Us Adults went crazy from one experiment on to another. Many artifacts from several eras of the human evolution but the most amazing was a true corner of rain forest where one can see a side impact of such a forest behind a huge glass with fish and...

I liked the variety of applied experiments you could do. When you get in It looks big but you at the end you visit it in 2/3h. I would recommend it but do not plan to spend the day there.

I think this is a case of good reviews raising your expectations to the point they can't be met... The exhibits all seemed to be in working order, but it didn't really hold my interest although my kids enjoyed it (2 boys, aged 8 and 10). I think we've been to so many science museums with my kids that they... More
