  • Very small but well organized. I can see using the features that received. It would be much better if there was a guide because many details cannot be obtained only with the texts on the walls. It is a pity that there is no policy of preservation of local parts best. There are unprotected parts ...

  • The Museum is small but your collection reflects on ancestors of that region. We can find ceramics, human bones and materials of marine life.

  • Very little material exposed and little information about the parts of the acquis. But it's worth a visit.
