Although it calls Museo del Mar, there are actually four museums: Museo del mar; Museo de los recuerdos; Museo de los Balbearios and Insectarium. The collection is huge, with copies from all over the world. There's plenty of explanation about animals, video immersion and photos, quite a story. The place is bright and packed by a beautiful soundtrack. It is an ideal tour for both children and adults. We spent a lot of time there. Recommend.
Museu bem cuidado, vários esqueletos de baleias, conchas de todos tipos, cores e tamanhos e um insectàrio. O Museo nos surpreendeu pela beleza e zelo. Vale muito a pena. Recomendo! more »Well-kept museum, various whale skeletons, shells of all kinds, colors and sizes and an insectario. The Museo surprised us by beauty and zeal. It's really worth it. Recommend!
From the outside we were skeptical of worth the price. It turns out this is more like four museums in one. Simply lovely. Numerous specimens and enough English translation plaques to aid when Spanish brain falls asleep. We spent about two hours consuming
Good for rainy days. Dont spend more than 2 hours.
