  • Perfect place to visit Very organized The museum is informative A video is available when you enter to let you know more about the place In museum, some interactive spots for kids are available but some of them are not working The best part is the dinosaur skeleton Try to take a copy of the museum guide book,, it’s very helpful The outdoor section is a little bit tiring , we were not able to explore all of if
