  • One of the must-see places for those visiting the city of La Plata. For families, adults or children alike. The pieces displayed there are invaluable. It is very well presented and the options of play spaces for children are contemplated. Exceptional!

  • Awesome. Great for kids. A fantastic old school museum in a gorgeous building, more dinosaur bones and animal skeletons and taxidermy animals than anyone would ever need. Upstairs has more modern interactive exhibits, but the first floor is why you come. Truly a world class collection of dinosaurs on display. If you have kids, this will be the highlight of their week.
  • Probably the best museum I have visited in South America! They have millions of very interesting pieces from earth evolution to human cultures. Also the entrance fee is free on Tuesdays!
  • This is a very interesting museum to visit. Kids will find it absolutely amazing. There were a plethora of exhibitions, prehistoric animals, insects, birds, etc..
  • The museum is very well conserved and the ticket is affordable, it's a very nice place to spend the day with family or friends 😊
  • The museum is simply amazing, the section of animals is so real, the dinosaurs and the human section were incredible. It's a place where you can go with your family and spend all the afternoon having a great time.
