We went this time for the wild animal photography exhibition. Quite unusual, not real expansive but well worth the time and it gives you a completely different point of view of animal photography. The museum itself is always a great place to spend several hours,...More

Not necessarily. The best bargain is Sundays, when you get in free, or pay what you like.
