A wonderful architectural mix of old and new housing natural history and science exhibits. Exhibits change often although the tropical jungle and river exhibit is amazing. Fully handicapped accessible. Highly recommended.

I loved this place the most. It has so many different things inside. It was a really great way to spend our time. I was amazed by the giant fishes swimming in the tank. And the rainforest! Oh, I loved it.

This is probably my favorite museum in the WORLD! My daughter ( 3.5 y/o) also likes it 😉 It is well organized, interactive to the nth degree, interesting, engaging. We can spend hours there and come back the next day. Highly recommended for grown ups...More

Too many people, too little to see. But it was very cheap. Neither me nor my boy were impressed with this museum. The best part was the mangrove forest, but it is not very big. The rest of the exposition was not very exciting.

I was hoping to find an outstanding Science museum, like we have in London, or in Paris. It is not too conveniently located - you have to walk about 15 minutes from the nearest tube station, no signs at all. The museum itself is half...More

I think It is. Most of experiments are Easy to understand even without explanations. About Two Years old boy, it's difficult to answer, It depends from the boy, but I think he should be involved in interattive experiments

You can book it directly for the entrance. However if you want to do one of the group activities you need to book it in advance
