  • Great collection on display. Should improve in 3 aspects:-Sympathy and attention in box attendant for ticket sales, primarily, explaining that the value of same goes for visitation to the Museum and insectary (across the street); -Improve the information with on arrival to the Museum as well as what it offers; -Separate the objects of the collection in sea, antique and personal as well as presentation and cleanliness. But a visit not to be missed for those who go to the PDE.
