    Private museum attended by the owner who is a paleontologist with passion for their work. They are "only" three rooms, a geology and two of Paleontology. But crammed floor to ceiling with copies of all kinds. It has several interesting pieces. It is permissible to take photographs and the entry is more than accessible. The owner, always friendly, invites you to ask and is more than willing to answer any questions. For those interested in Paleontology, chatting with him is more informative and interesting than any guided tour in any other Museum. We went with a 9-year-old boy who loved it. If you are interested in Paleontology, don't pass. And buy souvenirs, they are very cheap, are very nice and help the Museum.

    Nice place to visit. It's not very big but it has a great variety of things to see. The owner very friendly and predisposed.

    It's not for everyone. It's a Museum for real interested in geology and Paleontology. The owner was a professor of geology, and has a fantastic collection of rocks and fossils. Impressive!

    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.

    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.

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.
