I know this museum since I was a kid. I was impressed in 2017 by the changes and updates they've made lately. Modern, interactive games, everything to make the 21st century generations pay attention. From insects to marine life, from the Stone Age to modern...More

It was an immersion in the Great Nature of the world, also in the history of the Earth, with very well preserved exhibits and a very nice exposed timeline of life on this planet. Definitely will come again!

I was surprised of the staff and how well maintained is this museum. They also offer audio guides and there are nice touchscreens all around so you can get more information on what you are seeing. We went on Saturday and surprisingly was not crowded.

There is no need for any identity to be shown for entry, but it is wise as a tourist to carry your passport or ID with you. I don't carry one myself as an expat, but better to be safe than sorry if a visitor.
