  • Very interesting and well done, not at all boring, is named after the Perito Moreno, the "foster father" of Patagonia. The ground floor is dedicated to geology, geography, flora and fauna: there are several stuffed animals including two enormous condors. Clear boards illustrate the climate and the influence of the Andes about two oceanic fronts. The first floor is dedicated to the conquest and colonization of Patagonia, native peoples, the Division of territory between Argentina and Chile took place thanks to the expertise of Francisco Moreno, the arrival of the railway and the consequent development of the territory. Mandatory visit if we come all the way down here.

  • 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.
