The museum is amazing! they offer a great engaging exposition, plus is free! but what I like the most about the place is the coffee shop at the entrance! They have a great vibe for reading a book and relaxing

It was very unusual to find this museum. Free of charge, the exposition was recently updated, with a modern style. Should be interesting for kids and families. In many cases, one can open some drawers, touch something with your fingers and guess what it is....More

This museum tells a lot about the animals, plants and natural minerals available in this region. The exhibits are of high quality and nicely put together. The admission is free and it is good to spend time with children here.

This is a beautiful, free museum features a delicious coffee shop and both are open Sunday morning. We found it while waiting for the time to board a cruise ship. Valpo has little to offer on Sunday, so this was a welcome retreat. The museum...More

I gave four stars because I see the potential this place has for families with kids. My husband (who doesn't speak Spanish) still managed to enjoy wandering through the exhibits, although he would probably give a three star average rating. However it is interactive enough...More
