  • The Museum building is already interesting from the outside, with cobwebs, and other animals on the facade. My daughters liked the stuffed animals and other bones and fossils of dinosaur.

  • The Museum is a great place for those looking for culture and also learning in your trip to Buenos Aires. When I went there was an exhibition on dinosaurs very interesting, as well as other animals exposed. A good deal with the family

  • 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. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
