  • It has a variety of rooms with different themes and even dedicated to animal species in the region both areas and vegetation. It is a clean, well organized place

  • Comes with high expectations since they had recommended it I often... IT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. The biggest point to rescue considered that it is THE TRACING OF THE ROUTE, you follow a single path (which despite not being fully established) you will gradually leading to nourish you different topics over the deserts. The iconography, the information, the inner and outer acquis is IMPECCABLY UNDERSTANDABLE, easy to digest for young and old. Congratulations to the entire team and especially congratulations on this initiative do teens participate in staff, approaches to culture and history from an early age and very wisely.

  • The Museum is quite good and complies with what should be a Museum (exhibitions, expos, research, exchanges, etc.) the only thing wrong is that many interactive "games" no longer work.

  • It was huge! Also very interesting. If you speak english find the tall skinny guy named Edgar and he will give you a great tour with a ton of insider information. It really made all the difference.
  • Nice family place. It's hot so take your water everywhere.
  • Great place, excellent exhibition.
  • It was okay to go through this, but there is no English information here. There are some animals and reptiles. It's an okay time if there isn't anything to do.
  • It ok
