The museum is clean, and located in a place that is much better than expected. The showrooms are very limited though. Not much to see. It may take you one hour to look everything around. however, there are not to many alternatives in Caracas if you want to go to a museum with your kids.

Worth seeing are the humble recreation of local ecosystem now replacing the awesome- now sadly lost- those of Africa. There was a time when a prehistoric Sable Tiger welcomed you at the entrance later replaced by a gilded goajiro rare ceremonial piece.Hope all this valuable treasures are still kept not stollen!

Since I was a child I'm loving this museum. I saw here a mommy for the first time in my life. I don't know if they still have that egyptian collection, I think was moved to the principal museum in Caracas but still is a nice place to visit. They change everything every 3/5 months.

This is an old museum, could be nicer if it was better maintained. It is quite a small place, few halls, with very few interesting exhibits and some of them show deterioration
