  • I was a great experience..it was so big and they have a big collection of skeletons and fossils of prehistoric and modern animals. They also have an anatomy laboratory with organs of plenty type of animals which is very interesting. I also excited with the sample of real blood and hair of mammoth that they have. I would like visit it again in the future.thanks and keep up the good work!!
  • This place is amazing! I was lucky enough to attend an evening event in this beautiful building during which we got a guided tour of the museum from the most chirpy and knowledgeable elderly biologist I've ever met. Ok I haven't met many elderly biologists but this woman was incredible. She took us around the animal exhibits with such enthusiasm you couldn't help but pay attention to her, and I totally loved her never-ending stream of weird and wonderful facts
