Underwhelming

Replicas of dinosaurs, but no original fossilized bones or eggs. I can't even understand where the world's largest carnivore was found - here or Plaza Huincul? I spent only 30 minutes.

Museo Municipal Ernesto Bachmann Review
Jul 2019 • Family
Museo Municipal Ernesto Bachmann was above and beyond expectations. It was extremely intriguing and being in the presence of the fossils of millions of years old dinosaurs is jaw dropping. Not only did this fabulous museum provide the fossils of the Giganotosaurus carolinii, there are also exhibits of several other herbivorous, carnivorous and omnivorous species of the Jurassic period. You are also able to view ancient insects that have been preserved in specific substances, the devices that Ernesto Bachmann used to uncover phenomenal findings and much more. I highly recommend this as a must see on your holiday to Argentina.

Small museum, nice for children/teens
Dec 2018 • Family
Small place - less than an hour to visit; Nice for children (they also have some kind of an activity for the young ones - looking for "bones" in a sand box... Was not active when we visited). Some nice dinosaur models, a dinosaur skeleton still buried in the ground, and some minerals and other items from the area

Great stop - check it out!

Another great dinosaur stop you need to make along with Plaza Huincul. Nice little museum exhibiting the largest carnivorous dinosaur ever discovered - isn't that enough to take a break from driving? Stretch your legs more with a walk around Barrio II and then down to the lake. You'll want to come back and again and spend more time.

We were just driving by villa El Chocon and we saw this giant billboards with dinosaurs on it so my kids wanted to stop. It is a very small museum but pretty neat. Great experience!

I have been here multiple times. It is so cool and lots of things to learn. My wife loves dinosaurs so when we lived in Argentina, we had an opportunity to take her. She loved it. It is also very cheap to tour the museum too

Small but fine museum with a live size Argentinean super dinosaur! The biggest in the world!!! The trip to Vila El Chocon from Neuquén is also very nice. Well worth the journey

Museum and local tour
Apr 2013 • Couples
I took the local bus from Neuquen to Villa el Chocon to visit this well presented little museum. Although probably not enough for a true enthusiast it is a great overview of the general history of dinosaurs and more specifically the ones that lived locally. After visiting the museum we asked if they could arrange a local guide. They contacted Remisses El Dino and we did a 3 hour tour of the local area, visiting the general sights as well as the dinosaur footprints and excvations. Antonio was fabulous, even though he had little English, his enthusiasm for the area and his use of Spanish for beginners meant that we could understand and learn a lot about the area. The total cost for two people for the day was about half the cost of using a Neuquen agent and comparing recollections with other travellers a much better experience.
