The attraction is excellent for children of all ages. Lots for them to see and do; most of it hands on. However the food prices are outrageous. €14.90 for a burger and a child size portion of fries.

I chose weekend for visiting this place. Too crowded so I couldn't do or see all the activities. I missed more interaction or explanation from the staff to the customers to learn from the visit.

Very interesting place for all ages. They manage to vary the exhibition regularly to keep it interesting. Baskeball playing rats are always fun to watch!
