  • This was a very informative and entretaining visit. It´s a small, modest tent on a sandy backyard, but the love and dedication the creators of this museum invested are touching. Well worth a visit 
  • Excellent visit to this Museum, of low cost but with a high value in what you delivered. Entering the unknown world of meteorites is very interesting since the end of the visit makes us reflect on life outside the Earth. Very good, I recommend it.

  • 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.
