  • It's a small, but very interesting museum with very friendly staff. We had an audio guide that made the experience well to understand, since the level is already a bit advanced. The tour guide took time to explain the difference between meteorites, and showed how to distinguish them from ordinary rocks.
  • Good informative museo. Very well organised.
  • It is located in San Pedro de Atacama and it is possible to go there by night, the ticket is cheap and it worths, you can see and learn a lot in this experience
  • Many important information if you're interested in astrology.
  • Rock museums always sound lame but endup being very interesting. This one has an audio tour showing de diferent stages of planets creations and why asteroids that arrive on earth are important to understand the process. In the end, you are allowed to touch space rocks!
