  • I liked this museum and the way girls do the guided tours - very informative and interesting! All the bones you see there were collected by the founder of the museum and volunteers who work there. It’s not so big but gives a very good overview of marine mammals who visit waters of Terra del Fuego.
  • A place to learn a little about the mammals of the ocean. Very interesting and beautiful location.
  • They have guides to explain about the history of museum in english and spanish. I really like the person who was explaining in english. This museum has remains of dolphins, seals, sea lions etc. which are fascinating to watch. Good place to go if you are interested in knowing about life under water.
  • The museum shows many interesting pieces and biology students provide explanations and answers to all questions we came up with.
  • The staff is super nice! Happy to have a brief introduction of the marine life
