If you are traveling with children, this place may be one of the best to spend time in town. You can get to the Museum by subway very easily.

This is the sort of museum I would recommend to families with children. The museum is sadly very linear and the ambiance is a bit dull. The displays are very well made, enacting “realistic” scenarios and manage to tell a “story” and a lesson at...More

There is no need for any identity to be shown for entry, but it is wise as a tourist to carry your passport or ID with you. I don't carry one myself as an expat, but better to be safe than sorry if a visitor.
