  • You can see the wonders of the ocean that are hidden from our eyes, the depths of the sea without going to a Museum, I wouldn't have Marine a chance to be seen and known.

  • This marine Museum, is located in Boca del Río, had closed, but already opened it again. It is maintained with love, and it has very interesting things... but is a Museum, not an aquarium. Sometimes children go with expectations of seeing marine animals, and, if they have some turtles, some small sharks and a few lobsters, but strong is the history of the island and the animals that inhabit it is its seas.

  • The Museum has several exhibition halls and variety of samples and related parts with marine life, both of Nueva Esparta and Cubagua, accompanied by photographic material, which illustrates the samples to visitors, all in perfect order and cleanliness. It has a contact area and a small Aquarium room, the latter if you require more exhibited wildlife information has No parking, the vehicles must be parked in the street in front of the Museum. The staff, very attentive and polite. We recommend a visit.

  • Excellent maintenance of the facilities, adequate prices with services and different samples that are offered. Yes, I can add that it would be great to offer people service guides accompanying the visitors inside the Museum offering lectures about history that is handled within the same and exhibited fauna. As well as the history of the museum itself.

  • Museum dedicated to marine life and native species in the area, has several exhibition halls where we know from some species of fish, marine fossils, skeletons of whales and handicrafts of place. It also display some live animals such as caimans and a pool with sharks cat. It is a place that is well worth visiting on the island of Margarita.

  • If you want to know about marine life, this is the place. They have an impressive collection of animals from all over the world and in the area. It allows you to learn about biodiversity and also the activities that take place around them, such as fisheries, navigation, ship construction, history, knots, in short, there are many things to see! Maybe some parts are in remodeling, but if there is something important to society is education and this is definitely educational somewhere that allows you to know beyond beautiful scenery. If you want to learn about the island, its fauna, flora and see some sharks, turtles, starfish and sea cucumbers, this is the place!
