This is a small museum which does hae a large variety of artifacts set out. If you can't read Spanish then it will be a lot less interesting as the display cards were only in Spanish.

Of the many museums of the kind I have visited, these is one of the nicest. Not to much nor too little exposed. Amazing the Megaraña (Mega-Spider) from the Jurassic and all the typical fossils of this place, Megatherium, Glyptodonts, etc.

A modern rendition of some private collections, this small museum has done a nice job of displaying a diversity of items: from geological specimens to small and large fossils. With a science background, I shouldn't have been surprised that they highlighted the "megafauna," those gigantic...More
