  • I think that it is one of the best museums I visited in Magallanes, has complete information about the history of the region, in addition to the wildlife that is impressive. For making a full stroke should have approximately 90 minutes to appreciate every detail.

  • We visited the Museum with family and it was very interesting. It has a sample of the fauna of the area, much history and is very well attended by staff working there. Highly recommended

  • Small museum, but amazing for parts and ethnographic work presented, in a land uninteresting as it's Punta Arenas
