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.

  • The Ecocentre is a nice Museum, which gives an overview of what you see in the region. My son loved the whale room.

  • 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.

  • Visit recommended for key aspects of the new Gulf and its ecological and human dynamics. Excellent views of the Gulf from all sectors.
