    Don't miss the dinosaurs and the 3D show. Free entrance from 4 pm on :) but note that the museum closes at 5. To see everything you'd need 2h so don't pay too much attention to stuff you're not really into.

    The entrance gives a taste of the immensity of this place. But $18 to understand very little, it's a bit pricey.
