We stopped into the Natural History Museum on the way from our hotel into the centre and were happy to see it was free as a lot of work appeared to be being carried out. We found it difficult to follow where we were supposed to go : they were out of museum maps, there were no signs and the lifts went to a few floors that didn't appear to have exhibits on. The facilities were poor (no loo roll or soap in the smelly basement toilets) and the exhibits felt very random with African animals next to polar ones without any apparent reason (I speak Italian, so it wasn't a language issue from what I could tell). There were no ramps at the entrance, and we couldn't get the strange lift contraption to work, so had to carry the pram up. I'm not sure how this museum could work for someone in a wheelchair.
I really really hope it was just half closed for the summer, but it looked like it could do with some serious updating. I'm very surprised at the other reviews on here and it feels like they were at a completely different museum.
