Some interesting items are on display, you cannot really compare it with a regular science museum, but it is worth having a look inside.

Visiting cabinet of biology and physics is a trip to previous century - while stuffed animals are interesting but in rather bad shape, cabinet of physics show different experiments to demonstrate basic physical laws. Definitely worthwhile to visit.

After more than 30 minutes looking for the entrance, a young man found us wandering around and led us to the entrance. there was a long queue so we just left without visiting.

Did I really pay to go in this place? They should close it down until it's fully dusted. And throw in someplace to sit down.

This is a large collection of specimens and scientific equipment to be seen. There are two buildings with different collections. Very interesting.

This museum is a must go for people interested in scientific collections and study material of the natural sciences of the late 19th and early 20th century. It is enjoyable to experience with what material past scientists had to work with

This is an amazing museum, it's perfect for kids: there is so much to see and to learn! You could easily spend half a day there! Don't miss out on it!

Half the exhibits don’t work, the half are as exciting as drying paint. Truly awful science museum. How can anyone rate this with 5 stars? Have you ever been to a science museum?

Science and natural history exhibitions are quite interesting but Laboratorio Chimico is a total disaster. It's supposed to be interactive but basically every single part of equipment is broken.
