  • Nice and well conserved. Good place to know the history.
  • Interesting content. Small and humble. If you really like museums you will like it.
  • It is a small museum, beautifully presented. It basically shows the evolution of the human being, and they have replicas of dinosaur skeletons. The girl who attends the place offers you mates or liqueurs to taste. It is quite far from the Center.
