  • A distance away from Puerto Madryn in the not so quaint/picturesque town of Trelew. The small museum is interesting, especially if you are into dinosaurs! The dinosaur skeleton replics are excellent!  more »
  • The museum is small but is nice. The personal were very nice. They have a coffe shop and a souvenir shop. You can spend 2 hours keeping the kids busy.  more »

  • 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).
