I wandered into this museum at a suggestion from a friend and was not disappointed. The only thing that disappointed me was my camera battery dying:( 2 stories of natural wonder! The dinosaur room can't be missed! Good for all ages!

You could describe it as an old building with a large collection of stuffed animals.But they did know how to build a jaw-dropping arxhitecture. The entrance with its huge dome brings you to a stand still and draws the gaze upwards for a few minutes. The exhibitions themselves are somewhat dated in the way the artifacts are displayed row by... More

Definitely go if you travel with children. It is a pleasant excursion. It is also interesting for adults... it is a travel back in time through the history of natural sciences.

i spent more than 3 hours, but honestly it could be much more, but I am not enhusiast of stuffed animals. Interesting, rare minerals, skeletons of dinosaurs and Venus from wilendorff. Unfortunatelly, now they have a renovation and some halls are closed untill 2015. Bees tree was also unavaiable.

Nonetheless, I would recommend visiting the museum for a short tour.

This attraction is well-worth seeing, plus it does not cost that much. There are loads of giant rooms filled with crystals, rocks and gems, then shells and space rocks. After you get past that (it gets boring after some time), there is going to be the bones of dinosaurs, which is just MARVELOUS and purely fascinating. There are also lots... More

For anyone used to British museum - this makes a most refreshing change. This really takes you into the heart of somewhere else.
