Museo del Lago Gutierrez, San Carlos de Bariloche

4.6
#1 of 8 in Museums in Province of Rio Negro
In most circumstances travelers avoid small, cramped rooms filled with bones, but at Museo del Lago Gutierrez that's exactly what visitors come for. Built thanks to the passion of Professor Rodolfo Pedro Corsolini, the private archeological museum houses a collection of around 10,000 fossils, rocks, and bones discovered in Patagonia. Have a chat with Professor Corsolini, who can usually be found on site, about the fascinating discoveries and what they tell us about the region. Take the guesswork out of planning a San Carlos de Bariloche vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • 45-minute intense geology, especially Patagonian and somewhat less than fossils. We found what we were looking. With enough variety to entertain girls 6 and 8 years old. Ideally you could sell some books on local geology, maybe later. Highly recommended.

  • I followed to the Museum with my children. It is a pleasure to be there, browsing among the wonders that are exhibited and sharing a chat with the owner, full of knowledge and generosity extreme to share. Highly recommended!

  • We found it by chance, but I recommend to all who can go, go! they have the composite flower more old ever found, Mr. Corsolini and his son are 10 people! friendly, willing to explain to children and large absolutely everything. It is one of the jewels hidden in Bariloche. It is overwhelming to visit the Museum!

  • Small museum full of passion.
  • The history of each piece found fascinating. Although this filled with richness and variety is small. It is served by one of the paleontologists who made the allazgos, who is friendly with both adults and children.

  • An excellent Museum! Very interesting what you can learn from the Earth makes million years ago. A walk for families.

  • We went there by bus, the trip lasted 45 minutes, arrived and was closed as it was Thursday 17:30 hs and was to be open according to the tourist report. Super disappointing.

  • A place lost in Bariloche, and in my opinion a must place to know.

Best things to do in San Carlos de Bariloche

Where to stay in San Carlos de Bariloche

Despite an abundance of economical lodgings, most budget-friendly options in Bariloche get fully booked well before the start of peak season. Hotels charge the highest rates during popular ski months (July and August), when you're least likely to find a cozy room without a reservation. Mid-range hotels near the town center remain the best option for most tourists, offering car rental and tour arrangements along with the usual amenities like free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and laundry service.
