  • Worth visiting, very near El Calafate and has a shuttle bus to transfer you from El Calafate, very interactive, great video footage of Perito Moreno 
  • It is a bar located away from the Centre of el Calafate, but they have free shuttle service. It is a fun experience, only 20 minutes for my taste is very little time... you get you some pictures and do the row, you get just for a single drink. Equal worth

  • The Glaciarium is a nice museum with good English translations and pretty exhibitions. Students get a discount on the entry fee, which is then around 16 euros. The museum gives a nice introduction to ...  read more »
  • A lot of pictures and unexplained videos, too few explanations about ice and glaciers. Outdated interactive animations for an expensive visit... I don't recommend it.
  • If you have some free time in El Calafate. There's shuttle bus to get there since its out of town Best if you visit before seing the national park. It takes around 1.5h to visit
  • Glaciobar opens 11-8pm - all you can drink for 25 min in the ice bar is 140 pesos (~$18usd). Cash only. Arrive 5 min before and buy tickets at the front! Tip: free shuttle from town runs on the hour arrive 10 min early to secure a seat.
  • A different place to visit. Has transfer without charge from the Centre of Calafate. It is away from the Center. Cute place. Is access to the bar of ice by time and paying the entry includes the drinks / drinks.

  • I thought it was wonderful! Already the architecture of the place seemed wonderful, recreate a structure glacial in in the middle of that "anything" is the Patagonia thrills. Excellent, very clear and rigorous information. It is entertaining and need greater disclosure to make that visit it not feel cheated. If, is a Museum in which is necessary to read, meet, listen and learn. For entertainment light this Disney, I think that that is complain of this type of Museum is wrong of latitude. Is an effort very big make a Museum, and one there more still. How are, when there is something you are critical. When there is nothing we wish that there was something. Well by the Museum, by the entrepreneurship and if there are things that improve hands-on.
