  • Probably one of my favourite places on the planet. Please - never change this museum. Don't upgrade it! It truly is a wonderful treasure, and has bought me immense joy.

  • Pictures don't do this place any justice. On the outside, it doesn't look as big as it is on the inside, and it has a lot of information and curious details about the minerals, animals, and all kinds of curious things that can be admired there. My husband and I took around 1 hour 40 minutes to finish looking at it, but could have definitely taken longer 😅 on the other hand, there are green areas and nice tables outside in case you want to have a quick brunch with family and friends. Entrance to the museum for adults is ₡2.000, and for kids it is ₡1.500. If you decide to go there, hope you have as much fun as I did! 🤗
  • Great collection of rocks and minerals, good collection of insects and coral. The taxidermy is awful....
