This is a very good eco center in an exceptional setting on the cliffs looking out over the water. The exhibition is well organized and walks you through the importance of the ocean globally and locally, the logic behind how the currents work, and gives background on the local fauna. Outside there is a great deck with views that will... More

We took the advice of others and visited this museum before heading out to see wildlife and were not disappointed. Great exhibits. Our children loved it and especially the hall that simulates going inside a whale's mouth.

At the moment of our visit this was closed. But since this was my fourth visit to Madelyn I remember how great this place was before. Not sure if the view on top is open now to public. If it is, then it's a great place to sit down and relax and admire the beauty of the sea. They also... More

The place is wonderful especially on a hot sunny day - it's nice and cool inside the museum, the building is beautiful and the view on the sea is very photogenic. We spent a long time in the dark rooms of the "whale shadows and sounds" exposition, it was a nice surprise to listen to whale's songs and actually feel... More

My son and I were amazed by Punta Tombo and the whale watching at Peninsula Valdes and wanted to learn about whales and penguins. Beautiful displays with some information in English but not as much as we had hoped. Still, we enjoyed it overall, especially the whale sounds.

Inside there's lots of info about the area & the marine wildlife, why they chose to spend time in this part of Patagonia & how we need to make sure... More

This is a nice museum, worth visiting if you are around, very educational and with some nice touches. It is small, so it will not take you more than 1 hours, 90 minutes tops.

The sensory exhibit on whales will stay with me forever. Make sure to climb to the top of the building for a great view.

I really enjoyed this place. Interesting interactive exhibits where you get to feel what it's like to be under the water with the right whales. Also you walk through these ropes to get sensory feelings of the right whales. Different. Nice exhibits and I liked it that everything was explained in Spanish and English.
