  • In an old House and 3/4 plants gives a small but complete overview of the area, both of nature and of its former inhabitants. Well designed and with very clear explanations of what is shown. Free entrance.

  • the Museum has a constant and permanent specimens most sample of you will see in patagonia, is a very nice ride for a windy day in which the outdoors is not a good choice, also offers samples and program for the boys! and of course the famous giant squid from 4 meters!
