  • Interesting and fairly complete, Museum has interactive areas and an audioguide with different languages that accompanies you on the tour.

  • I went into the Hall to check what it was about, it looks like a big tent to take a general look I noticed that there were apparently some fragments and the like and would have to pay to enter and use a stereo with explanations. It didn't seem to be interesting. Maybe for those who care about this topic worth (really is the site of a meteorite fall).

  • Museum mounted in place where meteorite fall occurred really. Round tent-shaped structure, well great. Has stone and other artifacts. Headphones with information about meteorite.

  • 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.

  • Interesting place to visit which tells the colo was formed the universe and our planet. There is a guide that teaches how to differentiate the types of meteorites. Preferred.
