The Qingdao Behring Natural History museum is nestled in the lovely Childrens Park, an unassuming building, nearly camouflaged with its natural landscape. As an avid museum-goer, I definitely wasn’t expecting the American Natural History Museum (New York) or even the Natural History Museum in San Diego. But this is definitely a great place to experience, especially for kids and families. The fun activities range from VR viewfinders to interactive displays, with individual rooms to view videos or relax as mesmerizing jellies float down a wall (via projection screen). Best of all, you can view your favorite animals up close and personal–observe in fear and awe, the penetrative gaze of predator and prey in their static stance, the meticulous care and preservation to keep these creatures alive (even in death).
