  • the ecocenter is where explains the different animal species living in the peninsula valdez, is very simple but enough to learn about the area.

  • A pretty different from a normal Museum experience, combining visual art with learning.

  • A special place. The view from the hall and the Tower, are incredible. In the Tower there are huge armchairs where enjoy several minutes with the colour of the sea. It boasts of sector of bar glazed, Auditorium, rooms for workshops and a tour to learn about the fauna of the place. It runs from evening and worth making the circuit by "beards" of the whale, in the dark and with a majestic sound that transport to the bottom of the sea...

  • The sea Vatican... excellent cultural place that reflects through art and education all over the sea, spacious, much to read, a good coffee with an extraordinary view of the Gulf! If you didn't understand stay with the heat in the rambla eating churros.

  • Interpretation center of the sea. It is like a Museum, but more interactive. The samples are changing seasonally, so it is good to always return to the ecocenter.-coffee with better view and attention of the world (large coca!).

  • I find it a scam. The entrance is expensive and does not warn that it is primarily a photographic exhibition. Everything boils down to an "experience", an Aquarium of molluscs and crustaceans and a sample picture. That Yes, all in a very nice building with spectacular views... but in a place that has thousands of kilometres of spectacular views. You enter and get you a girl who you guidance on how to start the circuit. We are entering one room all dark, about 20 meters long with screens distanced from each other where you can see a whale swimming slowly. Cute, it's like a vision from a submarine without disturbing the animal... clear that the image is not filmed at it height it and today I have more resolution on the screen of my phone than in what he saw there... pa whale passes and returns in a few minute cycles (3.4...?) Then you go through a corridor where to hang a few soguitas to make you feel that you atravezas the beards of the whale. Interesting. Raisins to a black and empty room where you can hear the song of whales. OK. Become a Hall of soguitas-out and you're out. And now... you can see a little aquarium or the sample photo. Or sit to see shorts in a CRT tele to show kids are kids were like the TVs before... Below there is a space for kids... desolate, old books... not invited. top a lookout very hemroso with good view and some comfortable chairs. Resumo: you agrarro a day of storm in puerto Madryn and not know what to do? Load the fear and grab a good book (you can go through the boutique of the book which is fine) and you're going to take a few mates to the viewpoint. If not there is no reason to go here. That if get you a cute skeleton of whale on a red beam... nice photo.
