The VG&M is a great way to spend the afternoon. Staff really seemed to know their stuff and were very engaging. They also had some great activities advertised for the kids so I'll be returning shortly with my son.

It is really worth to go the expositions, fascinating fossils and history of the building. I was a bit disappointed by the cafeteria that is expensive for the poor quality of the food and the service is weak. However the place worth the visit.
