  • Small museum, sketchy, but also authentic; It exposes the documents, memories, and pictures that have been preserved over time; moving visit where we associate with these parties Welsh life "to the promised land"; the hardness of life here has spared no one and we are told that they have of their salvation to the natives that they take the land... a beautiful lesson in sharing.

  • Do not miss this museum if you want to meet someone who speaks Welsh! I was thoroughly impressed with how much Welsh Eduardo could speak after only learning Welsh in his spare time for the past year. ...  more »
  • The cost of the entrance to the Museum is 30 pesos, for retired 20. The museum itself is not very big, but the guide that we attended was very friendly (rare thing in the locals) and explained to us in detail and answered our questions to tooooooooodas. If you like history and want to know about the first Welsh settlers at Madryn and his encounter with the Tehuelche is a very good option.
