Owner description: The Museo de Vida Silvestre (or Wildlife Museum) in San Juan allows people to see what wild animals from around the world look like. It is filled with a variety of mounted animals in displays that depict their natural origin and behavioral habits. It is a great way to learn about animals from far and wide without ever leaving the metro area.

“Hearing crickets, not much else”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Was here for a seminar in their meeting room. Very strange, no one visiting the place except an occasional school field trip. Granted it was the low season and middle of the week. Very quiet inside. The exhibits are okay. I got the feeling this was some politician's pork project that limps along. House of Horrors was set up for Halloween, go figure.

“Disgusting ripoff”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Museo de vida Silvestre features stunning paper mâché and plastic animals in their simulated environments. Situated on a city dump, this museum mimics all the ambiance of visiting a zoo, from the smell of poo, to the signs reading "do not touch the animals." In addition, this thing they call a museum is very small and visitors are only allowed to take pictures in a very limited area of the facility. Without a doubt, if you're looking to waste money and have a bad time this is the place for you!

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Too small and too expensive. Saw the whole museum in 20 mins and paid $10 for adults and 7 for children, it's not interactive, and no guides around. Not worth it

“Wildlife In San Juan”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

A very fun and educational place to take a family short outing. Many species of wildlife not found in the business of San Juan. Although we did expect a small cafe, they was none, only vending machines.
