Plaza Acevedo, Concepcion

4.2
#3 of 10 in Museums in Biobio Region
Find yourself face-to-face with life size dinosaurs in the triangle-shaped city square of Plaza Acevedo. The square got its name from the Chilean aviation pioneer Luis Acevedo who lost his life in a plane crash in a nearby town in 1914. Within the square you'll find the Museum of Natural History of Conception which opened in 1902, as well as a small theme park called Jurassic Park which opened in 2008 and offers life size reproductions, games, and rides, all dinosaur-themed.

Where to stay in Concepcion

A youthful and modern cultural center, the city of Concepcion boasts an extensive range of places to stay, within easy reach of the buzzing main neighborhoods. South of Los Carrera lies the main choice of accommodations, with backpacker-friendly hostels, modern boutiques, and simple hotels all located close to the main bars, restaurants, and hangouts. A stone's throw from the university, this is the liveliest place in town. If you're more into exploring the region's natural highlights, consider staying a little farther out of town, where a good number of chain hotels put you conveniently near the main regional roads.
