I usually don't like "static" museums, but expositions here were very nice and science part is completely interactive - best place for kids (6-12 ages), although also our 1 year old son was amazed :-) The only negative impression was from the "restaurant". Although they offer kids meals I would rather bring own one next time
Great fun and interesting program for the whole family. The natural museum offers a variety of exhibitions and contains interactive explanations for a lot of things while the technical part of the museum houses educational games trough which different physical phenomena are explained. Great whole day and rainy day program for the whole family. Even adults can learn a thing or two.
