  • 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.

  • They make the best thing that can be with what they have, to the extent back have several localsitos that sell food and drink, a good choice of variety.

  • 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.
