Me, my wife, and our three kids (6, 10, 13) visited last Saturday. We liked it. First, it was free for us (not sure if it is for everyone). Lots of stuff in Spanish, so if you don't know Spanish you'll be limited to come...More

My husband and I visited this museum because we both love fossils and minerals. This museum has a few dinosaur related displays, but its strength is in fossils from older eras: lots of trilobites, crinoids, brachiopods, carboniferous plants, etc. Plus as other reviews say, the...More

If you are interested in geology and minerals then this is a must. Very nice collections in a beautiful building, worth seeing itself. Easy access by metro, situated close to station Rios Rosas. And free of charge!
