“Good flora and fauna exhibition”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

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 the indigenous cultures, so you'll need to decide for yourself whether this is worth seeing depending on other museums you've been to. We had seen very similar stuff in southern Chile, but if we hadn't we would have found it more original and interesting. Finally, by European standards, at 20 pesos it's worth it for the flora and fauna room alone.

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.

“More informative than I thought it would be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

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.

“To better appreciate your visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

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 settlers too. The informations are given also in english. Its location is perfect, right by the main square of the city - so it's easy to go there for a couple of hours after or before lunch, for instance.
