Worth a visit if you enjoy natural history museums. Very little info or signage in English, so beware, but lots to look at. There is a fascinating variety of animals that range from amazing to shockingly awkward. And an amazing large collection of butterflies! On top of that it's cheap. Only 2000 colones!
Nice Museum with focus on exhibits of the current age of Evolution. I guess it tooks us 1.5 hrs to go through. The entrance fee is 1500 colognes for kids & 2000 colognes for adults. The museum may not be a Highlight of the worlds most important Natural Sience institutions but was absolutely worth the price. The Focus is on exhebits of four categories - Birds, Reptiles, Insects and Mammals. Its a good activity for a rainy day in San Josè Center!
