We went there, but they are closed for renovation until 2017-09. It's a large museum from the outside and should be interesting. Rated three stars because we didn't go there.

Interactive displays good for children. Unfortunately lots of the interactive parts of most of those displays were not working. Might be a good place to take children. Free!
