Beautiful facility with very nice, somewhat artsy, high tech exhibits explaining the wildlife and ecology of the area. Expensive entry fee for foreigners, but it supposedly helps support research. We happened to visit when there was a photo exhibit by Dario Podesta, a local biologist...More

I would have given this 5 stars had the cafe been open. Limited opening times and does vary depending on whether cruise ships are in so worth checking. It can be reached on foot from the terminal (about 5km) along a good pretty flat road....More

Walked here from the city center. Overall a rather small museum but chic. Guide was nice. Not with the price.

It's not disappointing, just that we saw several other much better places. We really liked the sheep ranch and punta loma.

The building has a very special location right in front of the sea. You can learn about the wildlife in the patagonian sea with pictures, videos and simulations. You can touch fake whale "beard" and actually see the whales just outside the museum backyard. Museum...More
