  • It is the first Museum of the city and is very interesting all that can be seen in, is well organized and is usually in good condition. Don't miss it, there are several interesting museums but if you don't like them in general museums stop not entering this, can't miss it.

  • Going to the lighthouse from the Santa Rita fortress on the West side of the town. A huge whale look from outside, but unfortunately the museum itself was closed, and is exhibited in the garden of the Museum of dinosaur bone specimens were impressive. Maybe it is standing at the Museum a 1 second display. Time you are visit during the opening.

  • You have a good view of the Museum, even from the outside. The garden is very beautiful and with animal replica.
