This is a small museum that offers an interesting display of the full history of Patagonia. Most of the displays are Spanish language only but it is not too difficult to get the grasp of what is being shown. Of most interest to me was the clear similarity in art and culture of the ancient people of Patagonia with the... More

This smallish museum is in an old building with very creaky floorboards. It shows the animals of patagonia and upstairs there is a lot of historical info and artefacts. Mosth labeling is in spanish with some pages hung here and there written in English. It is relatively cheap ($30) pp, so not bad value for a rainy day, or to... More

It's a small museum in an old building. The history of Patagonia, the description of its flora and fauna are interesting, but some of the exhibits (like so many stuffed animals) brings the tone down a bit... Maybe if you take your kids...? Mind you, only 20pesos (about $2at current blue market rates) entry. Don't think it's suitable for wheelchairs... More

My husband and I stopped in here while wandering through the main drag of San Carlos de Bariloche. It was only a few pesos to get in, and we enjoy museums, so we figured we'd check it out. It's very small, but has some interesting artifacts and photographs. The taxidermy animals on the first floor gave us a laugh because... More

The best part of this museum is an exhibition on the flora and fauna of Patagonia, where they have on display a collection of taxidermed animals (don't worry - from the 1970s) and easy to understand information boards about the various types of landscape in Patagonia. However, most of the rest of the museum is a display of artefacts from... More

Small museum but a lot of history from the region and also a separate exhibition about the nature of today. Note that the museum is closed Sundays and Mondays.

I enjoyed this museum and was surprised by the size and expansiveness once I was in the building. It's a nice place to stop in and get an appreciation for the history of the area and a flavor of the local people.

When visiting a place where we have never been before, it's great to find a museum like this one to tell us about it. So here you can find out about the land, the climate, flora and fauna of patagonia, and also about the different human cultures that have lived here before europeans arrived - and then about these first...
