  • I have never seen in my life such a large sample of insects, the time is lacking to enjoy such a large sample, they should be offered guided, dinosaur fossils are replicas but children are fascinated.

  • Worth a visit if you enjoy natural history museums. Very little info or signage in English, so beware, but lots to look at. There is a fascinating variety of animals that range from amazing to shockingly awkward. And an amazing large collection of butterflies! On top of that it's cheap. Only 2000 colones!
  • Nice Museum with focus on exhibits of the current age of Evolution. I guess it tooks us 1.5 hrs to go through. The entrance fee is 1500 colognes for kids & 2000 colognes for adults. The museum may not be a Highlight of the worlds most important Natural Sience institutions but was absolutely worth the price. The Focus is on exhebits of four categories - Birds, Reptiles, Insects and Mammals. Its a good activity for a rainy day in San Josè Center!
