  • definitely not for adults, they have really missed a trick here to have some more depth and exciting parts of the museum, it's very tacky, superficial and light touch lacks any kind of real...  more »
  • Very nice for kids! Well, it's also interesting for their parents to be honest :) you can easily spend there whole day without regrets. Toilets and food/drink corners on every floor. The top floor (fifth) is pretty much a food place which has much more options then other floors. You can pay with credit/debit card, use free lockers to leave your bags or just take them with you. You can exit and re-enter with your ticket which is great. All in all, nice place, especially if it rains outside :)
  • One of the greatest museums I have been to. A perfect place to get your children acquainted with science in a very funny and interactive way. A lot of astonishing games and cool experiences are offered. There is useful information even in the toilets!
