  • For those who want to learn about the Antarctic continent I think there should be a better place. Are several containers with explanatory material about it all: flora, fauna, tides, wind, weather, ... Not open Mondays and holidays.

  • Very interesting, gives a good idea of life and of the Comandante Ferraz Station, in Antarctica. And also the importance of the contributions to the sciences. The peculiarity of the distribution of containers is very similar to the original station. Location relatively easy, but there's no place to buy water or any other liquid there. We miss, because visits are internal and external.

  • Don't expect a vast exhibition pieces. This museum was assembled in containers and these centers are exposed several tables with a lot of written information. Part of the focus of the exhibition is the Comandante Ferraz Brazilian Antarctic base, including the project of reconstruction of the same. The most interesting part of the exhibition are two vehicles used in the station: an ATV and a motorized sled. The Museum is located in the same complex in which are the Oceanographic Museum the pier where the boat to visit the island. Admission is free.

Where to stay in Rio Grande

The area around the old dock offers the greatest number and variety of accommodations in Rio Grande, with pastel-colored family-owned hotels among the most charming options. Modern stand-alone hotels become more frequent as you step away from the water and the historical dock, with prices varying between them depending on amenities and ocean views. Hostels and guesthouses provide the budget options in this popular part of town. If you're looking to keep the cost down, consider staying at one of the hotels in the largely residential area to the west.
