  • With 1,500,000 species of animals and plants, I can assert that it is the most complete in the world because I know several. It is in stage of remodeling and modernization but worth a visit in its entirety.

  • It is a beautiful Museum, complete, its best attraction, for me, are the dinosaurs, my grandchildren love. And something to highlight, once in a while, become nocturnal visits with lanterns, it's exciting, an adventure.

  • One of the Museums I've visited. Real-size dinosaurs, just to get started. Many historical rooms.
  • I stumbled upon this museum and I am beyond glad I did! I spent 2 hours inside and wish I had had more time to dedicate exploring the exhibits. All the levels were great but the animal exhibit with taxidermy and skeletal models was mind blowing thorough. I HIGHLY recommend visiting.
  • Visited this museum during my stay in La Plata. It's definitely worth the visit. They have many dinosaur fossils along with Rich culture history of South America.
  • This is an excelent Museum , you shouldnt miss it if you are visiting BsAs. have a nice collection of Taxidermy , take at least 3 hours of visitation.
  • Good museum for earth and animal lovers
