  • There is a shuttle that leaves from the Center 1-2 times per hour according to the schedule. Taken in the parking lot of the hotel here in downtown. The Museum is really interesting, it is worthwhile to take a while to read the information. Pass videos in different rooms and only criticism is in this respect: in the room where they spend the video in 3D, there is also one on the breakup of the glacier, quite interesting, with some amazing and very well narrated images in addition, but only in Spanish! and without subtitles, and taking into account that around us most were non-Spanish-speaking foreigners, a pity that they have been able to understand what Islam is. Apart from that the images speak for themselves, the truth is that it was very well counted and was worth listening to it. Many began to murmur and rose and went. It should be considered correct. In the same Glaciarium, but with separate entrance, is the ice bar, provide a few layers and special gloves for cold, to my taste it was not some must see, only was fun to take some pictures in a strange place.

  • Near the city of El Calafate, the place is very nice. There is a shuttle from downtown, then we will pay input. No it is somewhat incredible, but takes a while visit it and it is good if they are children. As for doing something tranqui any morning or afternoon that les is free.

  • 360 pesos each paid adult. 3D movies are good, the rest of the exhibition is tiring sometimes, very polluted from text and images... don't spend more than 1:00. The café attached to the box office served the worst that we've had... don't go
