  • Visit in January. We spend there 5 hours and still didn’t go through everything. We got stuck in 3rd floor with interactive science! Absolutely amazing.

  • This place is great. The museum has some cool and interesting things. Children and adults all will have something to their liking and will definitely have a good time. It is recommended that tickets be bought online beforehand to avoid last minute chaos. For those wondering, the tickets are free! There are cafes if you need refreshments and of course pay a visit to the gift/souvenirs shop for some cool memorabilia. You will easily spend 2 hours or more so be prepared and make your plans accordingly. Have a good time!
  • Absolutely spectacular day. This place is massive and it took me a whole afternoon to get round it. Lots to see and learn. Great learning place for children. It has 2 little cafes and rest rooms. The shop for souvenirs is, also great. Top place and completely free. I booked in advance online.
