  • The Museum is a great attraction for lovers of knowledge. Account with wonderful replicas and very good service to visitors. The weak point is the location, a bit "out of hand".

  • The Museum is interesting and instructive for children. The size is ideal for kids, not too small, not too big. On the day we went, there was activity for children on the outside.
