  • The Museum is very small, so it is not the first choice for tourists really interested in archeology and Paleontology. However it has very good information about the paleontological material that there is, and is an active research center of the National University, so it is likely that there is more material each time. For lovers of nature, it has a beautiful garden and a collection of more than 130 species originating in the area.
