  • It belongs to the University and is small, but very educational, especially for travel with children. I could see penguins, sea stars, fish of different species and sizes. Totally free with prior permission. The objective is to teach children and adults, flora and marine fauna that exists on the Chilean coast. Visitors can meet part of the sea and become aware of the importance that has to preserve the sea and nature in general. Visitors can take the different species that are observed and are guided by marine biologists and students of advanced courses in marine biology career. I have attached a photo, did you useful?

  • Interesting visit to know a little more of the marine species that inhabit our sea. There are several aquariums with living species and samples of other stuffed. While the Aquarium/Museum is small, very well meets its objective learn in entertaining form and is grateful for the concern to keep it. The University environment is very nice for a short walk, with manicured lawns, flowering plants and a few seats that are called to sit and gaze out the Bay. Recommended to visit with children of all ages. Friendly people from the goalkeeper to give the directions to reach the charge which was at that time.
