What kid wouldn’t love to immerse himself into the world wild animals, dinosaur fossils, stuffed birds and lovingly preserved insects? At Durban’s Natural Science Museum, inside Durban City Hall, children have a gala time delving into African wildlife and archaeological history. They’ve even scrounged up an Egyptian mummy named Peten Amen from somewhere. Another highly popular exhibit is one of the best-preserved skeletons of the extinct Dodo in the world. The exhibits and education programmes offered here centre around biodiversity, conservation and ecology. With almost 300000 visitors annually, the museum is among the most popular of its kind in South Africa, despite its rather small size.
