  • The Museum I was surprised. The truth is that it is very comprehensive, careful and interesting. You have skull of all living beings incurred for having and all times. It is very interactive, I went on the night of the museums and had all kinds of educational activities and interesting talks on each species/area. Is immense, anda to explore it with time because it seems never ending show you new things. Very good!

  • It is a very comprehensive Museum, guides depending on schedules, is ideal for travelling with children in school age, is recommended, but it is not a must-see.

  • El museo posee una de las colecciones mas grandes de aves de argentina con mas de 300 especies. Tambien es posible escuchar el canto de mas de 50 especies presionando botones. Tambien se destacan los fosiles hallados durante la construccion del subterraneo y calles de la ciudad como un gliptodonte hallado durante la excavacion de la estacion Tronador. Luego una sala dedicada a la geologia y tambien un sector dedicado a artropodos y reptiles. El precio es muy economico $40. Lo recomiendo
  • An excellent museum filled with everything from giant Sloth to a half exposed imbedded wooly mammoth to prehistoric dinosaurs skeletons and a collection of giant insects. Inexpensive and open 7 days a week from 2-7 pm.
  • It's so big that you can not see all with one visit. You'll need two or three times at least.
  • A very interesting collection with a sandbox for kids to excavate "dinosaur" bones.
  • It's not the American Museum of Natural History, but for the space it has and the price of the entry it's very good.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown.
