  • Though small, it has lots of information and excellent examples. The guides are excellent, show much knowledge and patiently teach everything. Not to be missed.

  • The Museum is relatively simple, but has a good number of samples of meteorites on display. The visitor is guided through an audio for each visitor who goes telling the story of each sample as you move through the place. The information is very accurate and reliable scientific sources. In the end, a guide leads you to do an experiment with a meteorite, where you can touch them and do some tests to differentiate the types of these. I enjoyed the accuracy of the information and the technology used to tell the story of each fragment.

  • Great museum - in half an hour you will learn a lot about meteorites and their impact on life on earth. Also you may get to meet the owner, who talks about the topic very passionately!
  • A small museum but a great chance to see and touch meteorites up close. The staff is friendly and available to answer questions.
  • great museum with lots of meteorite samples collected locally. one of the most interesting places in town.
  • A small place where a huge knowledge is acquired. Audio system guide is perfect not to miss any explanation. At the end of a personal talk with a guide charrua served to clear doubts and keep my children encouraged with the theme.
