  • The sea Museum is a wonderful place to spend a sunny day or a rainy day. The bar is also very nice and the store has very beautiful things. Show them they are changing, but I don't think that you can go to Mar del Plata without spending some time here. It's free and cute. More can ask for.

  • We went to the Conference organized by the winter break and I loved the proposals. Promptly cinema presented new films and it was well organized by 3 functions. At the same time they put together an art space for children with different proposals. And during the year tb proposes and things for the kids. It's nice to go.
