  • Very nice museum. It's very big. There are a lot of different rooms, there is a lecture room of the university for a chemistry class. Theirs is also physics room where you can touch different things and see the results all based on science. It's very educational. It will be interesting for adults and children, also for students. There is a nice garden where you can have lunch 👍👍👍👍👍
