Museum of Natural Science
Fossils, indigenous objects, fossils, rocks, fish, amphibians, reptiles... Where shall we start?
Both educational and fascinating.
With more than 100,000 artifacts divided into different categories (archaeology, anthropology and mineralogy, among others), this neoclassical space on Plaza de los Museos designed by Carlos Raul Villanueva is an obligatory stop for lovers of natural and human history. It includes a good number of objects from Venezuela's - and the entire continent's - prehistoric past, among which there are skeletal remains of prehistoric indigenous people, as well as objects that once belonged to them; many fossils and rocks; even almost 5000 varieties of Venezuelan fish, amphibians and reptiles. Open every day and admission is free.
