Interesting place
Mar 2017 • Friends
Located in the lovely Jardi Botanic. Nice to stroll around the gardens then learn a bit more about the history of Soller and Mallorca. Entrance fee is covers both.

Always a delight
Feb 2015 • Family
This little treasure housed in a historic Soller house on the main Soller- Port Soller road, is thankfully not a monstrous, interactive pleasure dome. It is an old fashioned, tranquil museum and has a wonderful library room. The displays of microfossils, fauna and flora are fascinating and there is even a sample of myotragus, the little mouse-goat that put Mallorca on the scientific map as it was never discovered elsewhere. it became extinct 3000 years ago and is a wonder to behold. There's a tiny gift shop and the joy of the museum is that after a visit one can stroll straight into the botanical Gardens next door!

A little 'natural history' gem in Soller
Aug 2014 • Family
This excellent bijoux natural history museum set on three floors of a beautiful old authentic turn of the century house, is curated by the indefatigable Carolina Constantino. It catalogues the wonderful fauna and flora of the Baleares and has special collections by nature experts Guillem Colom Casasnovas and Joan Bauza as well as a specimen of myotragus (ground floor), the little mouse-goat that put Mallorca firmly on the map when it was discovered in 1909 by Dorothea Bate, an English fossil hunter with the Natural History Museum in London. There is a little shop and library room (worth a peek), as well as simple refreshments. The museum adjoins the lovely botanical gardens so a joint visit is essential. It is crucial that holidaymakers to Soller make every effort to pop by to support this non-profit making gem. It is now without state funding so every centimo and euro counts!

Intersting but limited and there did not appear to be any English translation for the narratives (maybe I should brush up on my Spanish!).

Too much written material...
Jun 2013 • Couples
This museum seems to have been built to cater for the schools on the island. The exhibit is ok enough. The material is also presented on separate laminated papers in English - but not all is as well presented as it seems to be in Spanish.

Old school museum but nicely done
Jun 2013 • Couples
Nicely illustrated series of rooms with some interesting exhibits about the geology and natural history of the area. Slightly old fashioned but none the worse for that. Free of charge but only if you visit the gardens. Unlike the gardens not so good for the non-Spanish speaking visitors.
