  • Amazing exhibitions! Animated dinosaurs (movements and sounds) on the top floor. My personal favorite. Multilevel Amazonian forest with sloths, monkeys, colorful birds and a diversity of marine life. Reptiles sections allows you to see plenty of different animals. Health exhibition is highly interactive and suits all ages.
  • Really nice place, highly recommend it for anyone interested in science or nature. When I was there the space exhibition was in construction, which was a bummer. The price was a bit high, but I heard they donate some of the money to charities that are working for a better environment
