This museum has ridiculous hours when it is open and it is closed when it says it is going to be opened. It's a five kilometer walk from the center of town and to find it closed is really annoying.

This museum of sorts showcases the whales and other marine life found in the Valdes peninsula and further south in Antarctic waters. There's a great view of the bay to be had if you climb up to the 2nd floor. Also interesting is the small open tank with anemones, fish and other marine life. The gift shop has some unique local items at great prices.

Staff was very knowledgeable and answered many questions. Beautiful location. Gorgeous viewing tower. My kids loved the tidal pool display with live crabs, urchins, sea stars, mussels, etc.

Located on a cliff overlooking the Patagonian Sea, this small museum offers a different approach to understanding the Valdes Peninsula and Patagonia. It combines art and science in many educational ways with emphasis on the understanding and appreciation of the area. Marine life, geography, ecosystems, ocean currents, evolution and more are woven into various presentations. There is much to be learned about the Southern Right Whale even to experiencing their underwater sounds. Interactive exhibits and children’s areas are good for the kids. Be sure to go up in the lighthouse tower for some good views and possible sightings of whales. The little artificial tidal pool houses a variety of invertebrates. Staff is fluent in English, and signs are also in English which is very helpful. Check on the times the museum is open because they seem to vary. There is both shuttle and bus service from town, but again, check on the times. Admission is somewhere between $6-8 US and the museum is non-profit. Nice little library, cafe and gift shop too.
