Opening hours

9am-5pm - closed 1 Jan, Thanksgiving Day and 24-25 Dec


The museum's galleries with their old wooden display cabinets exude an old-fashioned charm. The galleries are eclectic in nature: minerals, precious stones and meteorites; glass Blashka flowers - veritable works of art that are as scientific as they are artistic, made in Germany between 1886 and 1936; fossils, including a mastodon dating back 25 000 years; and animals from around the world, including a superb collection of 650 species of birds from North America. A must!
