helped by a mesmerizing Hockney film on a Chinese scroll, this is a treasure trove stuck in time. Ideal for physicists who can discover the old experimental apparatus.

Always wanted to visit here but somehow never made it till today ! Such a pleasent experience. The museum was not crowded , and hence it was nice to take time and look around. The museum is a mix of art, science and history and is really nice to read through the information available about the pieces on display. We saw this on open Monument Day and definitely liked it. My kids enjoyed the science bit , watching the fossils was being part of history. Definite must visit once 👍
This is a beautiful museum! There is lots to see and it’s very interesting. It’s wheelchair accessible but sadly you can’t go everywhere in the museum. The displays are a bit to high for someone sitting in a wheelchair and you really have to stretch yourself to see lots of things. But overall it’s a great museum!
