    The Museum is very beautiful, has several well-appointed rooms and each exhibition presents their corresponding explanations. It is a different choice of the range of proposals that tourists are in CABA, perhaps it should modernize some issues and preserve facilities, but the place is fascinating. It's worth the time.

    Really unaware that there was a Museum of these characteristics in CABA. Gives a bit of pity view that they should have a better budget to modernize it a little more. Is also well worth visiting it. I was an a boy of six years and became fascinated. Highly recommended.

    I took my 4-year-old son on behalf of dinosaurs and we had a nice surprise! A well-designed Museum with a collection impressive, educational and well maintained. Has a wing of insects, birds, reptiles, mammals and dinosaurs. For children and adults!

    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.
