(4.2/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Set eyes on the preserved carcass of a giant octopus at Museo Provincial de Ciencias Naturales y Oceanografico. The natural history museum, housed in the century-old Chalet Pujol, places a special emphasis on humanity's relationship with the wild seas. You can see skeletons and fossils of a wide range of animals, both land-dwelling and marine, as well as the museum's showpiece, the alien-like octopus. Look for the tactile seaweed exhibit, where you can handle a piece of the strange marine vegetation. Take a guided tour to get the most out of the museum.

  • This museum is set in an old House that is beautiful. The Museum is very well organized and is interesting. Do not charge entry. The staff is very friendly.

  • The Museum is located very close to the Centre of the city of Puerto Madryn. Chalet Pujol is called. We were very well received, admission is free and invited to explore each one of the rooms, very well designed and decorated with various objects such as tables, pictures, skeletons of whale and sea lion; also birds, insects, regional fauna. It was a beautiful trip.

  • I loved what we saw, the squid giant, the birds stuffed. Madryn is an expensive city for local tourists, and with guys not to mention! so these options are very interesting for children learning saviors and apart. You have to go, climb the stairs, eye that there are several! and let the kids enjoy and ask.
