“quite complete!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Big museum and free of charge entrance (Always good)!
4 floors dedicated to History of the living and a part about Earth creation and planets.
nicely senarios décors of animals in their habitat.. a bit old looking sometimes.
Maybe needs an refurbishment (feels like the movie "night in the Museum).
Good for families for a 2 to 3 hours tour .. dont spend your day there tough.

“interesting for an hour or so, but mediocre”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

It's worth going to the Natural History Museum if you're in the neighborhood and have nothing else to do for an hour or two.

But its an awfully mediocre museum compared to those you find in bigger cities, like London, Paris, New York, Washington, etc.
