This is a very small and quite park. Not much to do really. It just has some sculptures and statues with some information. We spent for like 10mins in the park.

The Intendencia Parque Nacional Los Glaciares is a small park in the centre of El Calafate. It has a small museum and cinema, a photo exhibit of natives in its corridors, and outside are statues, maps and old rural machinery.

We stumbled onto this museum while walking the main street of El Calafate. I would recommend seeing it. While we were there, there was an exhibit of native pictures from the late 1800s and early 1900s. In addition, there is information on the man; Perito Francesco Moreno which I found interesting.

Not much to see here but it's worth a visit prior to your glacier visit since you can learn a lot about what you're going to see and experience in the park.
