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.

  • The town of Trelew doesn't offer much, but this is truly a paleontological museum "treat"; well structured, well explained, allows you to take a trip into the past through the remains of dinosaurs found in the area. Especially recommended for families and schools.

  • We returned after four years and returned to marvel. An ideal Museum for children. There are real bones and replicas (not only dinosaurs, but also all kinds of fossils that inhabited the region) is very well decorated. On the exterior is an extension that is under construction.

  • Museum to go with the kids and teens. Beautiful found pieces of fissile in patagonia and also in Brazil and elsewhere. There is a complete dinosaur leg more large found and is majestic. More than 3.5 m. The most fascinating is the fossilized eggs of herbivorous dinosaurs

  • Great museum, it's an excellent place to go to learn a bit more about dinosaurs and the world's history before humans. I really loved this place and the price of the ticket totally worths. There's a cafe in there if you want to enjoy something tasty in your visit. There's also two videos that you can watch, one of them has a schedule and the other one doesn't stop. Amazing place to go with family, friends or someone whom you can enjoy with this travel to the past
  • Patagotitan mayorum at its best!!!! Excellent experience. Thanks, MEF!
  • The place is a lie! Only 5 dinosaurs. It is very small, 3 very nice little rooms.... it is incredible that it is so well publicized. Don’t go there Es una mentira! Es un blef! Re estético pero sin contenido fósil.
  • Awesome Argentinian dinosaurs!!
  • Small informative museum but would not go out of my way to visit.
