  • When it runs it and begins to see dinosaurs and the amount of years that make that they existed one feels so small in relation to the time of our planet and here you realize that. Very good media.

  • We went and we liked it so much, it has an important synthesis power, what found me is that the discount retirees since they do it should be higher and not just 20% approximately. The entrance costs 160 pesos and for retired 130.

  • I VISITED the MUSEUM in late October 2015. though small is VERY ORGANIZED with REPRODUCTIONS of WHOLE SKELETONS of dinosaurs and PREHISTORIC MAMMALS. EVEN THE PART ABOUT THE INDIANS IT IS WELL TREATED. THE GUIDE IS A LADY MANY HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE. AT THE EXIT YOU CAN FIND INTERESTING BOOKS.
