Numerous mushrooms, not a lot of anything special. Smaller than we realized. We only stayed about 20 minutes. The mushrooms were purple, that’s about all there is to see. Not really that interesting : (

The displays are beautifully presented with painted backdrops and moulded features effectively creating a realistic environment to display the animals and mushrooms. The displays are informative and in English and Greek. I saw lots of animals I've never seen before and was surprised by how...More
