  • Always current, always interesting. An unforgettable ride. Natural history, geography, geology, astronomy and much more combine in the most important Museum of natural sciences of South America. The route is long (about 3 hours minimally). Starts in the creation of the system solar and arrives until the first civilizations. Kids are always amazed with the dinosaurs. The Museum has a bar downstairs which allows a break. The entrance is very accessible, and perhaps this plays against given that on my last visit, I noticed some lack of maintenance in certain areas, perhaps due to lack of budget.
