  • I loved the museum!!! From the care of the employees to the care and dedication that the rooms have. It has 3 floors and a viewpoint. No doubt you have to visit it.

  • While it is a small place, it has a lot of information about the history and fauna of the place, it is very well diagrammed to tour and learn. It has a viewpoint from which much of the city is appreciated. Admission is free.
