Very nice museum. Lots of hands on exhibits to keep kids (of all ages) engaged. Variety of exhibits covering multiple different topics. Also interesting for adults.

it was amazing - well organised, fun, informative and varied. my daughter and I both loved it - especially the aquarium, the reptilarium and the jungle/rainforest areas.

Nice experience. An interesting aquarium with baby sharks, mini Coral reefs and games for kids. There is also a reptile section with snakes and aligators, a chemistry lab for kids, and a space section. Main highlight however, is the huge rain forest which lets you walk along some rare and beautiful birds, monkeys and other species.
Wonderful experience. Must visit if you are in gotenborg. If you have kids then this a place to visit with them as they will have fun along with knowledge. This place has aquarium, reptiles section, science section with fun quiz and many more activities. Kids will surely enjoy their day.
