Very small Natural History museum. The collection of birds is huge! I don't think I've ever seen such a big amount of birds in a museum. Nice little visit if you want to kill an hour. Will recommand to any birds lovers!

This museum is fantastic, especially the ants and live snakes. The skeletons are also really interesting and very innovative. Very reasonably priced and children are free.

This is a really cool museum that is quite cheap considering - it has a lot of exhibits with animals, dinosaurs and geology that really stick in my mind. Staff were really friendly and spoke some English. You need to set aside about two hours...More

It was good to have something to visit on a wet Sunday afternoon as most other places were cl;osed. The exhibition is rather extensive for the size of the building.
