  • Very good museum. Several attractions for children. Lots of educational activities. Well served of clean toilets. Available space for those who have children and need space to eat a fast lunch. There are plenty of tables to eat. There is a restaurant in the second floor.
  • I'd give this place fours stars just because when I visited the area focused on the scandinavian ecosystem was under renovation. This is a great science museum mostly for kids, although adults also can have a fun time here. The main part is probably the rain forest and my favorite animal was the sloth, so cute. In the aquarium you can fin lost of sharks. A great option to visit during winter.
