Having been to many natural history museums over the years, this one is relatively small. But that made it more manageable with small children. Animals, birds, dinosaurs and the ability to literally climb inside a whale. Overall a good few hours of inquisitive fun.

Personally I find stuffed animals a bit creepy and not necessarily the best way to learn about natural history, if you are a fan of taxidermy then you will love this. The museum is vast and really well cared for. I went with my daughter (24) and we stayed for an hour and also had a coffee and cake in... More

It was quite eye opening to see so many stuffed animals in one place. The baby blue whale was mind boggling until I went upstairs to the thousands of birds (I've never seen so many or varieties) and animals around the world. I liked the African animals you come to expect (elephant, giraffe, zebra, etc), but I loved seeing the... More

If you like a museum with stuffed animals this museum is just exactly for you :) full of informative stuff about animals. The place itself is big enough and many rooms to look for. Good for children and parents as well. The stuffed Elephant and blue whale in the whale room is so awesome! It's amazing how they do that.... More

This is situated in a lovely park in Gothenburg - it houses an extensive collection of animal exhibits which I found very interesting. Even better, it was free for under 25s. The building also has a nice café and gift shop.

Plenty of stuffed exhibits including the worlds only stuffed blue whale and a giant African elephant, and plenty of info in English. Less interesting for adults.

Not quite worth it. Better than nothing, but... Stockholm's museum is somewhat better, but nothing compared to Vienna's. If you want to find something kid-friendly to do - you can do better.

We didn't get to see much of it because we got there late and was fascinated by the section of birds they had! It was row after row about birds! And fish and other animals but we didn't have time.. it was cool though! Recommended for animal lovers who want to see every species! Also free of charge if under... More
