La Caverna (The Cave) is a cave replica for children located in the Museo de la Infancia el Pequeño Sula (Little Sula Children's Museum). The idea is to raise the interest towards Earth Sciences in children. A cave is a mysterious place and offers a lot of interesting things like minerals, rocks, weathering, and cave animals. The cave also contains interactive displays where the children are asked to solve puzzles and quizzes. The replica is actually more or less a copy of the Cuevas de Taulabé, one of the two Honduran show caves.
The project was planned for 12 years and with the support of the mayor and his wife various companies donated the funds for the exhibition. It was then realized by the staff of the museum in only four months. The exhibition was extended by the Jurassic Adventure exhibit in the same year. The interactive learning center was created from the need of the local school system, which lacks science laboratories. The idea was to allow school classes to make day trips to the museum and offer a higher level information, which is not possible at small schools. The Museum covers four important topics, Universe and Environment, History and Values, Art and Sports, and Science and Technology.
