Awesome museum center with multiple museums under single roof and ticket. Any one of them would be worth the entry price.

Great deal of exhibitions of different variation. Great place to visit in a rainy day. It's located in the Finlayson area, which has many interesting places to visit.

This was a nice museum to visit with kids. Several displays don't let the kids get bored, and the reception gave them assignments to find certain things from the museum. We also had lunch at the restaurant, which was ok for the price.
