  • Visited on a Sunday during a busy family event day. Some of the exhibits were impressive, but the place felt dated and few signs are translated to English. But it was free and let us kill some time un...  more »
  • The Museum is located in a beautiful building. Here, history is alive. Beautiful and informative exhibition. What is for everyone. The evolution of the people with the latest discovery of the 1st Europeans. Then the dinosaurs to plants and insects. Stay up to 2 hours and never a dull moment here. Also offered movies with different themes are well received. The restaurant is ok priced and the food (Fussili with porcini cream) was tasty and €9.80 not.

  • Great collection, presented in a classic, logical way. There are few signs/explanations in English, but this is not much of a problem because the collection is presented very clear. The insect and mollusc collection is presented with lots of drawings to clarify the functional anatomy of the different exhibits. The bird collection is a classic long row of cabinets, which I love. The dinosaurs are amazing, and the subcollection of dinosaur birds and marine animals is superb. It's a very nice visit for both adults and children.
  • This is an amazing museum and you simply have to bring your child, teenager or yourself here at least once! The museum is giant and so you won´t make it through it all on only one day. Everything there is simply amazing and I remember loving it as a child!
