Paid 3 Euro per person to see a floor with some specimens of animals and skeletons. Hot inside. I have seen museums worthy of the title. This is a collection and a small one at that.

It's on the far end of the college and basically it is a single room in the Zoology Dept. It is a few Euros and it goes to the department. Honestly, read my review it is a cool place to take a short walk through.
