“Interesting history but loads of reading”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

The initial displays about te history of the geology of the island is quite interesting. The human history we found a little less interesting (we were here to see/enjoy the natural sights, not though) and the information about the current human context is also interesting.

Pepe the tortoise -
Disappointing to see a sad tortoise trapped in an enclosure. And way overfed to get him close to tourists for photo opps - poor thing an barely stand up anymore.

Walk to Frigate Lookout is awesome and snorkeling in the bay below is a must if you are there. Playful sealions in the water with you, loads of tropical fish to see, and Frigate birds and Blue Footed Booby's on the cliffs.

“Really interesting it learn the history of Galapagos. Worth an hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

I visited really early (6.30am) before a day trip and had the place to myself. There. At have been guides/ people to answer questions later in the day but I found the displays really informative. They give the geological and social history of the islands, which is something you don't really learn about on other tours.

It's an easy walk from tone, and then you can see the displays within an hour, so great to do either before or after a day tour. Some friends of mine liked it so much they went twice during their stay on San cristobel.
