  • Very interesting is this visit. The building is very attractive, classic. The content is extensive, but you can go in an agile manner to have a general look and want to stop at that one more.

  • This is the best visit for the children. Although there are that go early for the amount of people who visit it, the best thing is that children go with flashlights and the Museum is obscured and sounds according to the sector that will be traveling with. It's fun for children and also for adults. For the peace of mind of adults there are very dim lights so they don't lose small.

  • 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.
  • The museum is very good and very big. Should need full day to see everything. At least in short time, the paleontology section can be visited and its amazing. Dinosaurs remains and many more preserved animals... So many... Its very good.
  • Surrounded by a beautiful park, the museum itself is gorgeous. There are nice food options nearby and a cafe inside, but don't expect anything fancy. Bathrooms inside are very clean. The exibits do need to get updated (here, Pluto is still a planet), and most are in dire need of maintenance. They should hike up the entrance fee from AR$40 to something more in tune with today's prices, and use that extra income to fix those displays.
  • Great museum. It was so big you can't believe it. Great collection
  • Nice place and full collections... price $50 per person. 15 July 2018
