Natural History Museum
This museum has been on its present site since 1966 and has become very popular with an average of 250,000 visitors a year. The permanent exhibition covers an enormous area with regional wildlife (88 species of mammals and 193 species of nesting birds), exotic wildlife, the history of the Earth (with dinosaur and extinct giant mammal skeletons), and a beautifully presented section of minerals. There is a cafe, a museum shop, and a team of attendants ready to answer all questions.
