  • This place is amazing! I was lucky enough to attend an evening event in this beautiful building during which we got a guided tour of the museum from the most chirpy and knowledgeable elderly biologist I've ever met. Ok I haven't met many elderly biologists but this woman was incredible. She took us around the animal exhibits with such enthusiasm you couldn't help but pay attention to her, and I totally loved her never-ending stream of weird and wonderful facts
