We regret your experience, but probably it was not our Museum that you visited. We have some months with free admission for all public, until further notice. Could you tell us the approximate date you visited us? Thank you very much.

It has some posts with English explanations but it all about human, native tribes and later invaders from Europe, but little about the nature of this land.
