    A museum with great diversity of specimens; from the Cretaceous to the present day. Perfect for children and adults, I'm not tired of see their large, beautiful collections of butterflies, their imposing specimens of dinosaurs, etc. Simply interesting! The entry cost was $2 per person.

    The place has one of the best collections of stuffed animal species that you can find in Costa Rica. Each room is separate and well labeled. This museum was created 60 years ago and presents specimens from around the world. A great place for all ages.
