The interior was breathtaking in beauty as you entered. You are awestruck! Each room holds unique and interesting exhibits. We felt it was well worth the time and money to explore. Probably the best natural history museum we have visited.

We've been to the NHM London but have to say, despite being from England, we much preferred this one. Some amazing specimens on display - especially the big mammals. €10 well spent.
