The museum is great! I did not expect such an amazing museum experience! I loved how this exhibition was organized and I really learned so much about the animals, forest and the whole eco system. I can definitely recommend it!

Everyone of us (6 people) missed the last 10 to 20 seconds of each part because the lights went out too fast so you had to start the new tape everytime before the one before that ended. Also while the person is speaking, you hear...More

This museum is very nice and you can see many displays with animals, birds and insects from Bialowieza forest. The exposition is quite extensive and it will take around one hour and a half. Each person gets an electronic guide and listens to the description...More

The displays are impressive but you are admitted in groups and have to move round at the speed of the group, which may well include impatient children and/or adults. This means the display will switch off before you have time to study it, and you...More

Not a whole lot of signage to the museum but not too difficult to find. Nice building, and well laid out but seems like the only way you can do it is with scheduled entry times and audio guides. Very informative, with a lot of...More
