Excellent scientific educational activity with great fun for children of a wide age range (2 to 15 year approximately). The models teach, in addition to Science and Technology, skills of coordinated team work, pattern recognizing and use of motor nerves.

Accessible and engaging for children and their parents/grandparents. It was easy to see the animals and the docents were friendly and informative. Spent less time in the other science areas but definitely want to check that out next time.
