  • A great museum with many things to see. They have a dinosaur section, human anatomy section, and more! Outside of the building, there was chickens, a helicopter, and a train. This is a great way for children to learn through fun.
  • It's a beautiful place, you can do so many activities and learn about history and biology. One off the problems is that you have to wait a lot to of the time in the lines to go to the activities. I recommend to buy the tickets after you go. I recommend to the place to do something to the time we spend waiting on the lines.
