Just alter the entrance, to the right there are some outdoor aquariums that have cat-sharks and sea turtles close enough to get a good look at them. We recommend not to try touching the shark, because a shark is always a shark.

In the rooms of the museum there are several very interesting exhibitions. There are all kinds of rooms, from an audiovisual room where they project some sea documental movies to rooms where they explain the fishing activity. There are also some rooms where they show dissected sea species and a new exhibition with an interesting model of Cubagua Island and the first city of Venezuela, Nueva Cadiz of Cubagua, which was destroyed by the sea and the pirates.
