I'd been looking forward to visiting this museum the most, however I was quite underwhelmed with my visit. The building itself is beautiful, it has great stone statues outside and it a very nice building to look at. The museum was not what I was expecting. It is mainly a collection of scientific (mainly to do with physics) instruments and not much else. If you are interested in the biological aspect of science then this place is not for you. It could be said that the Natural History museum would be more up your street, but it is closed until 2014 so on my visit there wasn't a lot that interested me. There are a few pieces in this museum that were interesting, such as Einstein's blackboard. However I think so much more could be done, there wasn't much for children to do, the exhibitions don't have a lot of explanation to the items. Basically if you're expecting to see things such as space and planet exhibitions, for example, you will be disappointed. However if you would like to see a mass collection of microscopes and astrolabes then this is the place for you!
The building also has a lot of steps,so please bare this in mind if you are taking children or people with disabilities.
Overall quite a disappointing experience, not a huge amount to see (the museum is actually quite small) but it's worth a look for the architecture.
