This place might have been unique 30 years ago, but nowadays many bug cities have similar exhibits. If you happen to be there and the weather is cold it is a pleasure to warm up... read more

This place might have been unique 30 years ago, but nowadays many bug cities have similar exhibits. If you happen to be there and the weather is cold it is a pleasure to warm up.

Good place rather for children.There are many plants like in rainforest.There are very wet and hot there and this is not good for your camera-so be careful! Children admire here butterfly , parrots, turtles and other little animals. This object isnt very big so you dont need much time.

Very warm inside, lots of butterflies and few other wildlife. Turtles, frogs, quail, and the at the end the shark exhibit! 145 kr for an adult.

I really liked the exhibition about the great white shark. Beautiful aquarium with small sharks, fishes and very cool light. The guide who talked about the sharks was unfortunately rude and arrogant when I asked a question after he had his talk.

The place consists of two "rainforest" rooms and one for the fish/sharks. The butterflies are beautiful but could be more of them. We saw many dead ones on the floor. There are two sharks that are relatively big (no one expects a great white) and interesting. Basically, that's all. It costs as much as the world famous Vasa Museum. It's... More
