This museum is quite large with 3 floors. And it is FREE! I recommend getting a guide or at least the audio guide if you don't speak Chinese but even without it, the children will be amazed at the giant displays of animals and dinosaurs. Great hour or two spent here.

Threadbare and delapidated. Some of the most wonky taxidermy anywhere. A dusty indoor plastic forest. And worst of all, real dead human bodies lying in formaldehyde in cases - truly macabre. Unless you revel in the shoddy or the grotesque seek thrills elsewhere.
