  • We did this on our last day in the islands and it was a nice way to cap the visit. The displays about the settlers are great, they give a good idea of how harsh life could be in the early days.  more »
  • Located not far from the Center. Friendly and pleasant visit. You can learn interesting things about the formation of the Islands (text in Spanish and English).

  • Such a great place to better understand the Galapagos. Spend an hour here. It's important.
  • A lot of info on the forming and history of Galapagos. It's free, self guided, in English and Spanish.
  • Well located interesting center. You'll need some patience to read all that is included. The walk around the park offers wonderful views.
  • Plan to spend an hour or two here and you can learn more about the fascinating history of the Galapagos Islands. The final exhibit is about the people and the state of the Galapagos Islands today. Most exhibits are in both English and Spanish.
  • Provides interesting history on the galapagos islands, but not a must see (Can get same info in a guide book)
