If you are looking to understand the basics in English don't spend the 5 Euros or the translator. The translator does give you a lot more information. We found we didn't need it for our short trip. Very interesting Museum lots of things to see cafeteria is reasonable. Several School groups but kids were very well behaved. It's worth the trip.
So much to see! You'll need a good day for this museum. Much has been added in English also since my last visit a few years ago. The building itself is also amazing to see inside with an awesome view of the domed ceiling from the café on the top floor. Lockers are available for your coats and bags too so it's easy to get around. It's 12 euro to get in (at the time of writing) and they have group deals for families.
Thanks history of nature! I like how they set up the museum so it starts from minerals and rocks and works with way up to more complex life. The museum is huge and it takes all day if you want to see everything. The building itself is magnificent too! I never realized how big Antarctic elephants seals are! The cafe at the top has great views of the yard. Unfortunately not all of the pieces had English translations. I would recommend it for everyone though!
We were treated to the geologist curator. Able to see and touch part of a core sample of the Chicxulub curator. He explained some of his travels to hard to get to areas trying to understand what happened that made the area of interest. In the exhibits there are sections of the hot water vents at the bottom of the Atlantic, large crystals, too much to mention. Very impressive presentation and museum.
Our kids liked this place. Tons of birds if you like them. The live-action Allosaurus was a nice touch. My son loved it. This place doesn't have air conditioning (at least it wasn't on when we were there), so be prepared to sweat a lot in hot summer days.
