Was not expecting much of this little museum, but it was great - very well done, free to the public (but we left a donation on the way out!) Animals, culture, really worth seeing...

Awesome museum for the whole family. Loved the butterfly room with alive butterflies and lots of plants! Interesting and beautiful exhibitions! And totally free, except the entrance to the butterfly forest. Go there!
