Just tried visiting a week ago, and unfortunately this museum is now closed. The employee said they should begin working on the museum in August/September and it should reopen as a music museum sometimes in 2018. So sad the animals will be gone, but glad...More

It's a smaller museum, but there are a lot of animals on exhibit. Exhibits are broken down by biome with descriptions of each and a map is provided to help identify animals. There is a 2-part video about Puerto Rico's environment and modern conservation. Our...More

Small place and a little expensive. There is a gift shop, a kind of cinema and the area for the tour. But you do gain knowledge if you aren't too familiar with the subject about animals in general.

This place is a rip off... Avoid the $10 entrance fee. The place is really small. I guess its meant for small kids only. I think it's not worth more than $5. Most animals are made of rubber.

It covers large and some small animals from all of the continents. You can only photograph on the first floor; photography on the second floor is forbidden, yet you'll see people breaking the rule left and right. The museum lacks [although it has space on...More

Although it openned its doors in 2010 the museum looks and feels like it is not finished yet. In fact just now they are putting up their gift shop and snack bar. The museum was a great thought but it has not been presented well,...More
