This is a one of a kind museum. The building was originally a convent, an nun's school next to a beautiful church (San Juan). The permanent collection holds stuffed birds so it is easy to appreciate them.

Really well done museum! Lots of different kinds of birds and tons of different information about the evolution of birds. Exhibits are both in Spanish and English so it's a great place if you don't speak much Spanish.

Creepy but cool. Old but quiche. Admiring dead birds is Not my favorite thing to do, BUT do not miss any classical music concert in the tiny hall at the entrance. The accoustic is great and most of the musicians are truly amazing.
