  • It is surely not among the must-see things, but it is worth making a getaway to visit. The giant squid is without a doubt the most peculiar of the Museum.

  • It has several samples of the fauna of the peninsula and something he had never seen: a giant squid. Only because that already the visit is recommended. They gave us a guided tour very instructive and personalized. It is located a few blocks from the Center.
