Being renovated a coupe years ago, this museum is a very nice way to spend a few hour learning about natural histroy. Especially for children i think it is great, but as adults you will not regret visiting.

This museum has been restored and it is absolutely amazing. The old building was impressive as well but now, that the restoration was done, it is worth a visit. Good for family with children. From time to time they have some additional collections to show : live reptiles, butterflies.

the entrance is marked by a cute giraffe made out of some kind of foam and the interior is fabulous. From life size skeletons of various creatures to ordinary pieces found normally in a museum, here there is something for everyone

It is worth seeing it. For me, I pass by much of the information they give you since they present it from a evolution point of view. I believe in Creation. Regardless what you believe, the artifacts are something one should see.
