  • 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)
  • Interesting information about the history of the Galapagos. It seems like all the tour boats dump their passengers here to kill some time at the end of their trips.
  • Excellent information, presented in an interesting way
