  • Awesome. Great for kids. A fantastic old school museum in a gorgeous building, more dinosaur bones and animal skeletons and taxidermy animals than anyone would ever need. Upstairs has more modern interactive exhibits, but the first floor is why you come. Truly a world class collection of dinosaurs on display. If you have kids, this will be the highlight of their week.
  • Probably the best museum I have visited in South America! They have millions of very interesting pieces from earth evolution to human cultures. Also the entrance fee is free on Tuesdays!
