“Well worth the stop in Trelew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Adults and kids alike, a fine collection of Dinosaurs, very nice staff, cool look into the preservation lab and real bones you can actually touch. The price is right and it makes for a good mid-day break.

“Not that extraordinary”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Paleontological museum is located at Trelew, in case you have free time just spent an hour in this museum, it is a small one with some dinasour skeletons and a short video show, children's will like it more than adults. The ticket is for 54 pesos.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Been there with my girlfriend and both of us were very disappointed.
The museum is extremely small - you can review everything in it, from the beginning to its end, in less than 30 minutes...
On the other hand, the staff was very lovely and helpful AND the movie at the end (not the one in the middle of the museum) of the round [in the auditorium] was fascinating. However, I'm not going to a museum to see a movie.
I hope they'll extend it and create a more complete experience.

Only a few blocks from our hotel, this was a terrific place to kill time that afternoon. Very good exhibits. Friendly staff. You will not be disappointed.

“The Best I have Seen!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We happened upon thios Palentological Museum which sits in front of the old Trelew train depot.
The story goes there was supposed to be a railway built between Trelew and Buenos Aires. It lloks like Trelew held up there up there in end of the deal waiting for the folks in Buenos Aires to show up...In side the museum is an amazing collection of pre-historic artifacts that are continuosly being identified throughout the area. Living here in Miami, I am surrounded by the distant cousins of these prehistoric bones...well they are much smaller today; and thank goodness for that! We enjoyed this museum so much we decided to stop in a second time. Park your car by the casino to avoid theft. Do not leave valuables in the car.
