  • We were walking around, but only outside, following some kind of path along a Boardwalk that allows you to view wildlife with explanations that are given by a guide history, geologic formation and on many other aspects of the archipelago.

  • 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)
