    Good reception and attention. Everything very clean and tidy. Super special flair for q children and adolescents learn through taxidermy animals q in reality not it may make closely; See the evolution of the phone, cameras, radios, typewriters and up to the same computer. The interaction is indeed very good. CONGRATULATIONS

    It is the Museum of science one of the favorite children's sites, because somehow you can see closely and life-size African animals such as the giraffe, which can adopt if they have economic capacity to do so... But on the second floor, can see to the teeth of sable and to a small dinosaur Venezuelan. The Museum is small, but its architecture is worthwhile. Attention in the surrounding area.

    In this Museum, unlike the other stuffed animals, bones of extinct animals, and other similar are displayed in beautiful way. It is fantastic!

    It is a good choice to visit something different and iconic in Caracas. It has different spaces that allow to enjoy different natural, artificial or technological parts (all referred to science). They have caregivers in almost all areas, though they don't offer you guide unless you request with advance notice at the entrance.

Where to stay in Caracas

Safety is the number one priority when choosing an area to stay in Caracas. The city has many no-go zones, although accommodations are typically located in safer areas. Nevertheless, it's worth asking your hotel receptionist for advice before you go out on your own. Caracas offers a range of mid-range and luxury hotels at surprisingly high prices, with few budget hostels available. The areas around Bulevar Sabana Grande and farther east are generally considered the safest options of foreign travelers.
