  • Large open spaces indoors and outside. Not crowded. Great exhibits for all ages. Went with a friend, and we had a great time. Dinosaurs, river giants, outdoor art, hiking trails, world culture exhibit...  more »
  • It is only a short time to tour all the wonderful spaces that the museum has. From the entrance impress the immense bronze dinosaurs. This cultural-family tour is ideal for children as there are spaces adapted for them. The Natural History Museum fulfills its objective by making us understand the evolution of the natural world. The visit to the museum entertains and teaches the whole family. It's a recommended visit.
