There is a Platypus dude! Best day in my life! It was so unexpected! Best animal ever! And the visit is free each first Sunday of the month! Don’t hesitate anymore my friends, it’s time to realize your dream 😉

Ideal for children as it is not too big only two floors. Allow one hour. Go in groups as it is a bit pricey. Maybe a refreshment area would be nice for summer when the heat is unbearable inside.Beautiful building and quiet cosy library.

This is a great museum for zoology students and kids. It is not like a zoo or a safari where you enjoy live animals but rather a place you learn about phylogenetic systems and genealogical branches of animals. Having studied zoology & ecology eons ago,...More
