  • If you want to visit a special Museum, the natural sciences is recommended, do not take more than 3 hours going around it, and there are many rooms of interest

  • She was about 15 years without visiting it, he hoped that like everything in this country he was impaired, but no, its spaces and exhibitions are impeccable and identified, the attentive staff, for children it is very educational. There is (I guess that it is temporary) an exhibition on the evolution of electronic devices (Walkman, video, sound, telephones) is a real pleasure to show children the start of those technologies that they never knew

  • Excellent option to visit and learn about the fauna of the planet, will find you after a short and pleasant walk by a small Boulevard which leads to the Museum square. I loved animals from Africa, especially the huge giraffe. I recommend it because leaving you have on one side the Museum of fine arts and the Los Caobos Park with its beautiful green areas and the impressive source Venezuela.
