Just got back from here yesterday. I actually liked it better than the one in Philadelphia, USA, and that one is world famous. There is a dinosaur exhibit right now, and it is very well done. the dioramas are very informative and well-made, and the section with living animals was well done as well, and interesting. There was someone without a name-tag at the living-animal displays (grad student? random genius) who explained everything and answered all our questions about the snakes, lizards, and other animals.

Might have spelt the name wrong but it is near Hersonissos and well worth a visit. One could spend 3 to 4 hours quite happily there as the Staff are very welcoming, cafe excellent.

Typical museum. The pretend earthquake was interesting. Worth a visit is too horrid to be outside.
