  • I visited it in September 2015 and I loved it. The highlight is the Simulator sitting inside a whale and the sight of the little lighthouse.

  • Linda disclosure proposal, but found it a little far away and expensive if vehicle is not available, or take a trip.

  • 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.
