  • Did a City tour that included a visit to this place, is self-guided and very interesting, with wide information

  • The information displayed is not supported by objects of the story that is told in the Museum. It is incomplete (lack of information, and relevant material) and this should be understood as lack of interest of the Patagonian construction either from the reinvidicacion of the peoples and of the effects of exploitation (whether territorial or human) from General Roca onwards. On the other hand, the information suffers from problems of translation (both in English and in Italian). Is suggests adjust the translation English of those texts in Castilian. Also, correct and modify them texts in Spanish (lack of coherence, cohesion and problems of expression to the writing). They are defective either, incomplete texts.

  • I VISITED the MUSEUM in late October 2015. though small is VERY ORGANIZED with REPRODUCTIONS of WHOLE SKELETONS of dinosaurs and PREHISTORIC MAMMALS. EVEN THE PART ABOUT THE INDIANS IT IS WELL TREATED. THE GUIDE IS A LADY MANY HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE. AT THE EXIT YOU CAN FIND INTERESTING BOOKS.
