  • The museum is small compared to what you would think of as a museum. The entrance is closed so make sure u open it (though it has no sign). I stood a good 5 minute wondering if it was even a museum before braving to venture in. Inside is a different word. The dinosaurs are unique and well displayed. The fossils are well labeled and explained. The moderate collection is definitely worth a visit.
  • Pretty nice one, but the "khunnu mall" shopping center has bigger dinosaurs.
