Poorly signposted.Took me a long time to find and wish I hadn't bothered.Usual collection of skeletons and stuffed animals for which they have the cheek to charge 6€.So unless you speak German don't waste your time.

There is large play ground outside and... More

Se voce nao for um historiador, geologo ou outra coisa do tipo, este museu é um pouco chato...tem muita coisa pra se ver, mas nada muito interessante... if you are not a historian, geologist or something like that, this museum is a bit boring...there are lots of things to see, but nothing really interesting...

Not so interesting. Only few records for kids on the audio guide. They got bored so quickly. It was though easy to access the three floors with child stroller.
