  • I keep me satisfied the visit, if I can rescue the architecture of the place, the beautiful stained-glass windows that exist in many places. It has a huge number of species, it is broad, it has many rooms. The bad thing is this deteriorated, missing you something modernize it, a few sectors those looks are them adapt. The skeletons are dirty, lack of maintenance. It is a shame because I think that it could be a spectacular Museum by its location, architecture and many species.

  • The Museum has a collection of great pampean fossil mammals of the eras tertiary and Quaternary., also include collections of trilobites in the Cambrian period and the period Argentina Silurian graptolites. The Museum also has halls of Zoology, entomology, and Botanica.se found in exhibition collections of archaeological and ethnographic character, and also an Egyptian room. The tour of the Museum retains the original criterion that is to go through an evolutionary line, and Florentino Ameghino library is

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It was a long time ago. I can't remember anything.
  • I bring my nephews here, a a family of friends. Really intresting, had a great time!

Where to stay in La Plata

Many of La Plata's accommodation options lie within the geometric square of the city core, which plays home to a majority of the town's tourist attractions. The variety of mid-range hotels in the city center keeps prices reasonably low; many of these are located in historic buildings just a few blocks from central Plaza Morena and within easy walking distance to the museum of La Plata, the cathedral, and main road arteries. If you're on a tight budget, consider staying at one of the city center's many hostels; though you'll likely be sharing a room with others in bunk beds, the low prices make them economical options.
