  • The museum has replicas of all kind of animals and that's is something that fascinates the kids. We also attended the Experience Sensorielle that the museum was offerering.

  • It would be a crime to give anything less than 5 stars. Firstly, I entered the museum for free with a Student card. The museum and exhibits were excellent- well maintained, very wide scope of specimens and very well displayed. Compared to some of the other museums with fossils on display, this one is undoubtedly one of the best I've had the privilege of visiting. The dinosaur fossil specimens are EXCELLENT. Very fine specimens, and the aide of natural sunlight really helps to display them brilliantly. Very impressed.
  • This place is amazing. And you can also go to the zoo and gardens. Museum has a huge collection in an amazing building. As good as any art gallery. Also several other museums on the grounds.
