Nice museum, not too expensive. We were there for a few hours. Nice cafe too. Excellent dinosaurs. Over a few floors with the top floor having a little cinema. Great displays about the human body and how it works. Worth a visit.

Er is ook een Villo station vlak voor de deur, wat het museum nog veel gemakkelijker bereikbaar maakt.
