Reviewed May 2, 2014

The museum is for free and has a very good collection. I spent there an hour. Go there especially if you have children.

“Kids on a rainy day? Head here”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

It's free, it's indoors, it's animals - stuffed. There's enough to keep people occupied for an hour or two you could even combine it with the geological museum not far from here

“Free! And great for all ages!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

What a great collection of wildlife from all over the world and beautifully displayed. Very interactive for those with active little ones: microscopes, listening devices, films and play area. An excellent display of fossil findings and creatures from the past. Just a little hike up from the city centre.

“great place to go with kids”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

If you still dont know where to go with your kids on a rainy day, this is a place to be. It's free of charge and collection is quite big.

“Loads to see in a small space!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Took my 8 and 10 year old there for a few hours. There are lots of stuffed animals to look at, earphones to listen to, and microscopes to peer through. Plus the fossil collection too. Well worth a visit!
