Ecocentro, Puerto Madryn

3.8
#4 of 8 in Parks in Puerto Madryn
Gain a greater understanding of the sea and the creatures that live within it when you visit Ecocentro. Walk into the cool building and begin the tour by entering a whale's mouth (or a simulation of one, anyway). The center engages both adults and children with its interactive exhibits, such as whale songs where you actually feel the vibrations. Many displays include signage with informative facts translated into English. The center also has educational games for children and videos of marine life.

    General admission sale $180 but there are discounts for seniors and students. It travels without a guide, but entering is indicated the best way to explore it. We liked it so much and we recommend them.

    It is a place to visit and not fail to take all their rooms, well furnished, bright and with abundant explanation. At the end of the tour you can take a coffee in confectionery.

    Nice interactive experience. Lots of info for those interested in sealife and ecology. You are actually standing on prehistoric sea bottom! ( Museum built on it)

    Nice place with a short sensory experience of being inside a whale, and some documentaries about the fauna around peninsula Valdés.

    The place has not much to see. The most interesting is the part of entry with sounds and screens that is out of the ordinary. Finally has a good service but it seemed very expensive 2 adults and a child all Argentine pay $480 for 1 hour to see a couple of pictures and sculptures

    Four stars for the original way of showing the environment. It is not a museum plain you it at the entrance is an exhibition of art related to nature. The price is in line with all Madryn, expensive prices. If you have disabled you lose to see some things because it has no elevator.
