It was beautiful. The arrangement was perfect, you dont need to think where next to go as the exhibitions just lead you. The exhibitions and artefacts are very well preserved. I think would be very very fun for kids too.

if you work in the museum domain you won”t be impressed, the aquatic world is poorly made and painted, but the rest of the exhibition is nice.
