“Kids on a rainy day? Head here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

It's free, it's indoors, it's animals - stuffed. There's enough to keep people occupied for an hour or two you could even combine it with the geological museum not far from here

“Free! And great for all ages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

What a great collection of wildlife from all over the world and beautifully displayed. Very interactive for those with active little ones: microscopes, listening devices, films and play area. An excellent display of fossil findings and creatures from the past. Just a little hike up from the city centre.

If you still dont know where to go with your kids on a rainy day, this is a place to be. It's free of charge and collection is quite big.

“Loads to see in a small space!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Took my 8 and 10 year old there for a few hours. There are lots of stuffed animals to look at, earphones to listen to, and microscopes to peer through. Plus the fossil collection too. Well worth a visit!

“Nice and enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Enjoyable place especially for kids and animal lovers...The museum houses several stuffed animals which was amazingly place and well maintained. Exhibitions, movies all in one place- quite unique and interesting. You can even listen to sounds the birds make using a device placed nearby. My 6 year old son liked it a lot so were we. The entry is free of cost and usually closed on Mondays. The place it worth a visit especially when you are with kids..
