A good museum with plenty to see. As we went there in the Easter holidays there were quite a lot of children running about meaning that I (as a big kid!) didn't want to hog the interactive displays! It was also a shame that you are required to pay separately for special exhibitions they have on there, one price for the lot seems more sensible.

Overall great experience! Very well done and clean museum. Kids loved the dinosaurs but a place geared towards kids could have bigger kid areas. The interactive exhibits were well done but the areas like the dino dig area was tiny. Only 3-4 kids max could be in there at one time. Deapite that it was still a great museum--took about 2 hrs for our kids (5,3,1). Price was good 7 euro for adults and our kids were free.

The only other comment is that is was not very stroller friendly. There were some ramps and an elevator but the ramps werent always in obvious places, the elevator took forever, and the entrance from the main road was about 50 steps unless you go arohd the corner and go up the side street (which we figured out when we left).

Overall recommend especially if you/kids like dinosaurs.

That’s the place to see all kind of dinosaurs. Excellent collection, a lot of amazing things to find about.
The other stuff they have isn’t too attractive, I would advice to skip if you’re not with a kid.
The first Wednesday in the month entrance is free, so plan your visit accordingly.

This place was great fun. We went to the prehistoric attraction and made fire and bracelets! The staff were amazing, super friendly and spoke great English. Ideal for people of all ages.

A really impressive museum that has an astounding dinosaur collection that is worth a visit for that alone. Situated near the parliament and close to Park Leopold. A great asset that is underused.
