The Museum of Natural Science is a scientific facility that aims to educate Caraqueños about the process of evolution that the Venezuelan hinterland has gone through, and the vast natural treasures that their land holds for them.
The section containing fossils and archaeological excavations is quite popular, as this gives an insight into the cultural history of the city. It also displays pre-Columbian era tools and clothes.
The main attraction within the museum, one that makes it especially popular with children, is its series of grand exhibits containing stuffed animals propped up in their very realistically rendered natural habitats.
