  • Knowing that was inaugurated in 1940 already give you an idea of the type of building, in the Civic Center and as a show of the work of Bustillo. Fossils, travel, history and much more... If you get a cold day or wind and destemplado, perfect!

  • Not adds nothing to a traveller that is not found on regular walks and excursions. If it can be an option for a rainy day but with lower priority.

  • As I had a few days in Bariloche, just not knowing the Museum was closed on Sunday and Monday. So if you want to schedule, don't go in these days of the week.

  • They have all kind of reading material about Patagonia's history and stuff
  • Precioso
  • Interesting. Lack of interaction.

  • The time I visited so I went with the impression of a museum old and little organized. I think that not a renovation would come you wrong.

  • Good Museum. Interesting things to see stories of Bariloche and Patagonia. It is small and runs fast. It is pretty careful.
