  • Nice building, atmosphere. A lot of interesting exhibits. Really enjoyed it. The only drawback is that everything is in latvian and just small part in english. But definitely worth visiting. P. S. A.....  more »
  • Very good if you have kids who can’t read and just want to look at animals, but not very informative for non-Latvian speakers! Very cheap, around 3 euros for a family ticket with 2 children  more »

  • We loved this museum very much. We came almost every week. But lately there is some terrible security guard, who comes and yells at little kids just because they put finger in water or some other little mistakes. Kid didnt do any harm to exposition. He was just interested why is there water? Is it real? The security guard yelled at me while i was visiting with two kids and she KICKED US OUT. Neither did they gave us money back or apologized. So basically not coming back ever!
  • This is a good place for visiting with kids. There are a lot of interesting exhibits. Only one thing is not nice - the detailed information only by Latvian language.
