  • AMAZING!! Sad I didn't have time to explore the entire museum. One of the best places of our visit. Great indoor and outdoor exhibits!❤
  • Excellent museum. The museum has many sections outdoor and indoor so it's recommended to go for at least half a day. The Mexican section was very interesting
