Expert review of National Museum of Natural Sciences
Housed in a striking late-19th century building, decorated with ceramics and coloured bricks, the museum brings natural science to life with lots of interactive exhibits. The Mediterranean Nature and Civilisation section charts how different species developed in the region. The dinosaur skeletons are in the Minerals, Fossils and Human Evolution area. Displays include a megathere, a giant sloth which was found in Argentina and is believed to be 1.8 million years old. The latest addition is a whale skeleton, which is 21 metres long and weighs 2,500 kilos. The whale was beached in Marbella in 2008. There is also a large collection of meteorites. A few temporary exhibitions are usually running as well.
Adult admission 5 euros. 2.50 euros for 4-14 year olds and concessions.
