Here's a great collection that isn't overcrowded by sightseers so you can take your time. The exhibit is also very contemporary with several tech updates for this digital generation. We had a great time in the dinosaur room and went around the exhibits several times.

Er is ook een Villo station vlak voor de deur, wat het museum nog veel gemakkelijker bereikbaar maakt.
