    The area itself is well cared for, but the building for exhibitions close early in the afternoon, the Aquarium is closed and other buildings as well. Unfortunately, who was in town for the holidays and decided to get to know the Museum disappointed in this sense. But it is beautiful!..

    One of the most beautiful places in Bethlehem, the collection of animals and plants is fantastic, the Museum has a good exposure and the woods have treasures, from Jaguars to giant trees of the Amazon, the most incredible in the heart of Bethlehem. Worth spending hours walking or sitting in the banks feeling the breeze.
