This was a great day out and it was fascinating. I couldn't believe how many different types of birds there are. It amazing that animals that are now extinct are still able to be seen by younger generations.

We visited on a rainy weekend, and it was really quite busy, exciting to the kids, but seemingly quite captivating to their adults too. This isn't a modern museum building, long halls, quite dark in places ( probably much to the benefit of the exhibits...More

I never expected the museum to be so full of animals from around the world. It was like being transported to the country of the species. It was truly amazing. Quite sad to imagine how these wonderful creatures were once running around free but at...More
