The collection of fossils and skeletons is very good and the visit to the museum is an interesting one. The interiors are very pretty too. It's a bit of an old one, but still can entertain and educate.

To see all will take about 2/3 hours. Use an Universitary Guide, Also available normally at the entrance. If go with a Tour arrange before with the touring Company to find one before being in the place.-
