If the weather's not good or cold in Zurich, the zoological museum is a good option to take kids to.

Heard a lot about this Zoo, which is natural habitat for many animals and has a lot of greenery and wildlife. We could not visit this place unfortunately. But, please plan a day for the Zoo's visit.

We read the reviews that it was great museum for kids. Well its a great museum for kids in the 3-5 year old range or teens interested in this type of natural history. As my wife and I are science teachers...the museum and its information are outstanding!!! only downfall for us was none of the info was in English.

Although the place definitely caters to people with kids, we went there without kids and still had fun (I mean, a giant sloth greets you right when you enter? Loved it as much as the kids did). There are quite a few interactive exhibits and loads of stuffed animals. Particularly enjoyed the fossil collection and the bird collection. Not the... More
