“Worth a stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2015

Visitor center in middle of town - main feature is a movie showing overflights of Patagonian Ice field and various glaciers
No text. Just music. Gives an idea of the vast area covered. The scarcity of other exhibits is disappointing. Could be great, but isnt. Hopefully will develop soon

Is still well worth a half hour visit. Movie runs in afternoon but staff will start it earlier if you just ask

“Stop by for good information”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

This is a good place to stop and get information about the surrounding area. We walked here as it is in the town off the main street. Inside the main building are some interesting exhibits and a friendly staff person who can answer questions about the park and give directions as well.It is worth a visit and the grounds in spring are lovely.
