  • A small museum but a welcome relief in a very commercial Bariloche. Quite a lot of local and regional info and facts. It would help to have good Spanish here to make the most of it.  more »

  • A small museum located off the heavily graffiti'ed (as of Nov. 2016) Centro Civico plaza that mostly covers the indigenous peoples of Patagonia and the Spanish/Argentinian waves that came in the 1800s...  more »

  • They have all kind of reading material about Patagonia's history and stuff
  • Excellent. Very complete from the anthropological and historical point of view. The part of natural sciences is more dynamic and concise, without much information, so it is not heavy after passing by other sectors.

  • The museum itself is complete and is good but: * maintenance lacks. The floor squeaks too by every tread that das. There are posters that have torn letters. * Must be updated. There are display cases with literally long texts in small print, many of them. It would have to find a way to not put together as much information as well because it makes feel like visitors to see. * I didn't have guided, they told me that at the moment there was but there was a woman giving a guided tour to a foreign Lady. It was not appropriate. Guided to all views should be.

  • Very interesting. If you like the story, you have a historical tour very well of native peoples. You pay an entry that serves to return to visit without pay. Very good attention.
