Free Museum!

Great little museum for families. It's free! Usually pretty busy on school holidays. We have been a couple of times and our kids have enjoyed going on field trips with school.

Visited with my toddler. Lots of stairs made it a little difficult. She wasn't that interested in the displays... but I reckon in a couple of years she would enjoy this

It's a very interested museum where you can learn not only about our environment, but also about recycling and how we can influence on the enviroment. Very recommendable for children. And it's free.

Okolariet is marketed as a science exhibition center, but it is more like eco-nature-science exhibition as the name actually states ("okolariet" is "eco-lab"). Quite small but nice, takes just an hour if you don't read all the texts (most were only in Danish). Kids liked it, favorite were the rats at the sewer...!

About 65% is also presented in English. A part was not or the panel would not switch to English. I missed some good information because of that. I hope I can find the info on their website. Such a good plan to make this museum available for everyone, such an important topic.

Thank MrsDamen
