The natural science museum can be a bit tricky to get to with minimal parking and a long walk from the closest metro stop but it has plenty of hands on activity to help make up for it. The dinosaur room is full of giant iguanadon skeletons and can hold young children’s interest for a little bit of time. But, as soon as they start growing restless or start running around the place you can scoot over to the hands on displays where they can learn about certain parts of the natural world. It is not as amazing as Technopolis but they do have a good time.
