  • A good destination for educational tours. The guides in the museum are good students and well trained. They will also try to educate guests about the value of conserving wildlife.
  • Beautiful and thought-provoking displays. Educational. Helps build awareness of the environment and our impact on other creatures. Definitely a must-visit for locals and visitors alike.
  • Good to educate people who throw gabage into ocean causing these innocent creatures bring to death !!
  • If you appreciate fossil art, then this is the place to ve. It's a good place to see bones speak of its ancient past.
  • A place built on passion and self drive... Superb collection of animal bones and especially marine mammals... Never throw plastics into the ocean... It kills whales!!
