The museum looks small from the outside, but is pretty from the inside. Lots of animals and stories on display. Recommend for children! There are a lot of interactive things in the museum for them to play and learn with. The museum provides a lot of information.

In comparison this museum is quite small, it does however have quite a few fun exhibits worth a visit such as the animals which died in unusual ways e.g. a porcupine stuck in a McFlurry cup. Other beautiful pieces such as the life size camel and a white swan living in a nest of plastic waste is great eye opener on how humans have altered the habitats of other animals.

This is a fairly small museum situated in a pretty park. There are several interesting facts about various animals who have died and the impact of modern western life on them. There is a section arguing for and against vaccination which is fascinating, but unfortunately all in Dutch. Some English translations would have been helpful. There is a fun section for children and it is very child and family friendly. There was also a really beautiful 'floral' display of paintings of Sebiha Ozlas. We enjoyed leisurely walking through the various parts of this small museum before enjoying a walk in the park.

The Rotterdam Natural History Museum is housed in a highly charming historical building with modern annex. The collection is partially classical -think very high quality prepared animals-, partially modern -think pros and cons if vaccination. In both cases very educational and entertaining thanks to thoughtful framing and humorous explanations. It is not extremely large, can be done in 1-2 hours perhaps in combination with one of the nearby Art museums. Parking is easy in the museum garage. Last but not least - they have my favourite animal, the Capibara!
