I was very dissapointed with this museum- guide books were comparing it to Natural History Museum in London, but it doesn't even come close. I visited in October 2005, and it is still undergoing huge renovation work. Lots of areas closed, and you enter through a minor side street door. I'm not a huge fan of museums at the best of times, but as a Zoologist i usually enjoy the stuffed mammal/ bird exhibits etc. However, even though these areas were open they were small and uninspiring.
If it hadn't been part of my Citypass ticket (I was visiting on my last day purely to fill in some time and get my moneys worth from the ticket) I would have felt cheated.
