  • It is a clean museum. Location is also good. It will take an hour to look around at easy pace with the kids.  more »
  • The museum was recently restored. It looks way better now. The kids love it. I think it is a must destination when you have young kids.  more »
  • Child and on many occasions led me to the Plaza Morelos, place where both museums: Museum of fine arts and Museum of natural sciences, then I had to take my children and I hope to take my grandchildren to this belliiisimo place. A curious fact, while Israel and Washington in the Holocaust museums, could know that one of the architects of these museums conocidisimos James Ingo, also participated in the construction of museums in Caracas.

  • Once it was a wonderful place to discover the science and natural history. It currently retains several projects interesting but not so great as in its best times. Need to make better maintenance works and provide dynamic activities for children. In addition, there is no bath service due to lack of water.

  • It's great... Beautiful, clean, well maintained, great variety of samples, rooms well designed exhibitions, with allusive decorations very creative and well done, super friendly staff and free entrance. Although it was inaugurated on 24 July of the year 1940 (already has 77 years) the truth continues to be an excellent venue for knowledge and entertainment. We spend more than 2 hours watching from here and there, through its surroundings and its gardens at the entrance (feeding the squirrels) pleasant visit. It is recommended to go with children.
