“Great fun for kids and adults”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

As stuffed animals go the exhibitions are very nice, newly renovated and inspiring. We have visited the museum several times and find always new details and things to study. Reasonably priced and close to the center.

“Fun trip and very educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Easy to find and get to with public transport or a short walk. There is a handheld tour available in english were you push a number code associated with the exhibit and a guide explains what you are seeing. Exhibits are very nice and the quality of the taxidermy is astounding. The museum is easy to navigate and is very informative/educational. There is a cafe and small gift shop on site. Plenty of maps at the ticket counter to help you along.

“Two headed cow and that's no bull...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

Pearl! Front of the museum is a handsome big moose statue, so go in to an adventure. This does not pale in comparison to any of the zoo-museums such as London, Vienna or Berlin. Very, very beautiful, especially in the wake of the new renovations. Here, it takes several hours and lookthis little Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, or Terra Nova. The atmosphere increased by the fact that in the Museum live poisonous spiders, so do not put your hand into the dark slots ...
