The Museum was very well organised with a clear separation of various sections. The huge aquarium inside the hall stood at the centre of attraction. We could spend hours watching aqua life. It was so big and detailed that we were only able to look...More

Nice place. There is a beautiful small park outside, that kids can play (during December it's part of the Weihnachts Market). The exhibits are impressive and very educational. Highly recommended. 👍

I'm a science nut, so I had to go in. If you're an aquarist, there's a hidden treat here - a 240,000L/63,000 gallon reef aquarium that may be worth the admission lone.

The animal models are very well done (African, polar, and pre-historic), it's educational (i.e. the geology section), and the aquarium is nicely presented....More

I went here with my family and friends... Total 5 kids and they all really liked the place. The exhibits are well kept and educative. The entrance prices are also not high, so also family friendly. Good place to go on a rainy day.

Very interesting place for those who likes natural science. The museum has several halls with different expositions on wildlife: marine, mammals, insects, ancient animals. Most of all I like the collection on mineralogy and geology, it is amazing.
