Museo Paleontologico Egidio Feruglio, Trelew

Take a journey through the natural history of Patagonia at Museo Paleontologico Egidio Feruglio. The museum exhibits range from fossils to multimedia displays and trace the steps back from the earliest human settlements in the region to the beginning of the universe. Patagonia was, of course, home to some of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered, and their gargantuan skeletons are among the highlights of the museum’s collection. In addition to the exhibit halls, the museum features a souvenir shop and a cafe. Information about exhibits is available in both English and Spanish.

  • It's very interesting. There are little real bones, most are made in the workshop of the Museum, but very well achieved. I thought it was going to be more impressive. Entry $230 per person (residents of the country) There are discounts for retirees and residents in Trelew. It is located in the city centre itself, opposite the Casino. Open 10-17 Monday to Friday

  • A !!!! SCAM ....... with a number of $350 for a minuscule museum of few and common specimens and without the replica of the exemplary star "patagotitan mayorum", with a projection of a video of terrible quality of 35 minutes in very boring English for children .... we spend $1000 on this deceptive activity, vast look at their website of how they sell the museum and the pathetic reality of it.

  • We had a flight cancelled and were stuck in Trelew for an afternoon. Trust me, the Dinosaur museum is the highlight. Damned with faint praise. It really is good though. Great history and exhibits. Worth a visit if you happen to be in Trelew.
  • Nice museum to visit. You Will learn a lot about the history of the dinosaurs and why that location is so important
  • Excellent and beautifully organized and presented museum. Very cool fossils and lovely showcasing of very interesting things (fossilized dinosaur eggs, shark teeth, skeletons, even a dinosaur bone you can touch!!)
  • There is a BBC produced presentation related to the Patagotitan mayorum discovery, it is in English subtitle in Spanish, not suitable for child under 8 due to the speed of the speech and concepts. Maybe should dub to Spanish to reach local language audience not able to read faster enough. The workshop public view is a nice concept not seen in other museums.
  • Great museum with very friendly and helpful staff. The only thing missing were more English descriptions of the exhibits (~50% English/Spanish).
