  • The Museum is very large and full, each of its floors with specific guides and important technological material. It is really worthwhile. Also is very cute the sidewalk and the plaza where is is for rest and during my stay by be close to the Carnival could see to children practicing their routines of dance. Really recommended.

  • I had read so much about this Museum, but it was a little disappointing. While physically a large museum, each floor is only half filled and provides a moderate amount of information. Nothing is in English, so if you don't speak Spanish, you're out of luck.
  • Beautiful Building, and well designed exhibits.
  • Espectacular.
  • Lots of interesting information. It makes you take your appreciation of the Caribbean area, with all its customs, its great diversity of cultures, flora, fauna, gastronomy, etc. I will appreciate less digital exhibitions, fewer screens and texts, and more physical things, but still worth going around it.
