Wow, what an educational experience. Very interesting and I would say an essential tour for students in the Biology/medical field. Coffee shop friendly and efficient staff. Had a cappuccino for R15.

Just go and go and have some child like fun for the day. Discover and see some of the things you always wondered about, how it works ? Make sure you take the whole family !!
