Owner description: The Museo de Vida Silvestre (or Wildlife Museum) in San Juan allows people to see what wild animals from around the world look like. It is filled with a variety of mounted animals in displays that depict their natural origin and behavioral habits. It is a great way to learn about animals from far and wide without ever leaving the metro area.

Too small and too expensive. Saw the whole museum in 20 mins and paid $10 for adults and 7 for children, it's not interactive, and no guides around. Not worth it

Close to Condado and Old San Juan Area, very good for young children, they have a movie and few wild animal exhibits.

A very fun and educational place to take a family short outing. Many species of wildlife not found in the business of San Juan. Although we did expect a small cafe, they was none, only vending machines.

I went to the museum with my wife and my niece of 7 years one year ago. For my niece, the place was excellent. She loved the exhibits and the tour guide did a good job (although sometimes the background noise did not allowed us to hear her completely). For me and my wife the experience was okay. We have visited many similar places in other countries. It is a small place that you could visit in one hour. The museum shop is really bad, with cheap toys (not in price) and a couple of boring tshirts. There is no cafeteria at the place, just vending machines. In terms of location, it is in secluded area near the ports and you can get there only by car. The parking was free at the site.

It's not the biggest museum but it's well organized and the travel guides know all about the animals they have exhibited. Also, they have a movie they play in their theater.
