Housed in an old casino, this center contains space to be rented out for public events, but also has a natural history museum that can be seen for US$1.

The museum is small but has plenty historical items! The kids read most of the information bullets and kept interested. The cost is less than $5 per person. Easy access from the cruise terminal. It a great treat for anyone that likes history.

Fantastic property, formerly the glamorous Riviera del Pacifico resort and casino. While we were there, a wonderful performance was taking place, singers, dancers, Mexican cowboys displaying their roping skills. Gorgeous painted ceilings, chandeliers, lovely grounds. Definitely worth a visit and staying for awhile!
