  • 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.
  • A nice place to go with children. The building could be better care and updated.
