We went there for the dinosaurus. They have lots of dinosaurus, no mammut unfortunatelly. The garden was closed, although there were few dinosaurus outside too. The rocks we saw are amazing, especialy the big ones. Worth to spend 1 hour there.

The museum is quite rich in a variety of stones and natural and geographical history exhibits. It also has a room with fluorescent rocks, which, although is small, is also highly interesting. Recommended for children above 7 years old.
