Excellent exhibits inside and out
I highly recommend the journey to the museum, in summer or winter. We have enjoyed the quiet atmosphere to contemplate an interesting work, have loved the outdoor movies over summer as penguins cross the Antarctic and a storm plays on the horizon. Even trekking through the outdoor trail, both paved and hidden was a fun experience when you didn't know what installation was growing or decomposing around the corner!

To the reviewer who complained he can't take a smoke and a glass of bubbly to the movies, get over it, you're better off in some dingy club if you're after that sort of action. The movies were great, especially the atmosphere and thankfully for the majority of us not prone to addiction we could breathe the cool fresh air.
Recommend: all the museum has to offer.
Not recommend: wingeing patrons.
Pros: nice seating for picnics, pleasant and surprising walk, interesting exhibits
Cons: the traffic lights on the way out take a long long time!
