I think it is a very good museum, especially the parts about animals. Also, you can hear stories and read stories in the lounges and libraries, and see funny pictures about house plans from fun fairytales.

A little old and run down at some parts, but overall a super fun experience for kids of all ages and was also very nice for the adults as we reminisced over the books we grew up with and are now introducing to our children.
