This is a well set out museum on a number of floors. There are many exhibits - skeletons, specimens, videos with some English translations. Cost 2 euro for seniors.

Surprisingly interesting and thorough museum, all for a relatively inexpensive price. I spent a lot more time here than I originally planned and enjoyed myself much more. I imagine it would be great for kids, as well.
