This museum has a lot of dioramas so save at least an hour or two to see everything. Some of the animals look kind of rough, but I think they have been on display for a very long time. My preschooler really enjoyed this museum.

Rich museum in terms of exhibits with interactive screens offering more info on animals (offered in English as well). I particularly enjoyed the dinosaurs' skeletons, plus the section which breaks down the human body (muscles, nervous system etc.)

I love the fact that they give free entrance for the poor students and teachers who dont have money to see the museum.

The permanent exhibits are really impressive - the way it is presented, the quantity and quality of the (many) exhibits. There are also temporary exhibits of all kinds - butterflies, tarantulas, scorpions, etc, etc. Excellent information, and also entertaining and pass-time for family.

There is no need for any identity to be shown for entry, but it is wise as a tourist to carry your passport or ID with you. I don't carry one myself as an expat, but better to be safe than sorry if a visitor.
