  • 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.

  • It is a small museum which commemorates the first Welsh settlers, the way in which arrived on these shores, their first jobs and occupations in Patagonia. It is interesting and admission is only $30

  • Give a tour of the Museum, down to the caves where the first settlers lived was a shocking experience
