Small but informative
Apr 2018 • Friends
The museum is divided in two sections, the dinosaurs and the history. The dinosaur side houses a replica of the largest land living herbivore dinosaur ever found, right next to one of the largest carnivores. Seeing huge real fossils up close was a treat, absolutely wonderful.
The informative plaques are only in Spanish, but if you understand quite thorough.
A nice point are the plaques written in Braille for the visually impaired. The plaque also have a small model of the dinosaur for the person to feel.
The modern history on the city (Plaza Huincul) is interesting and there are many fascinating artifacts from the last 100 years of petrol mining.
The cost is minimal, we paid 15 pesos per person. I would have paid more.

Amazing Small Museum
Dec 2017 • Couples
Original fossils of the largest land creature to ever walk the earth are the basis for a breath-taking reconstruction of Argentinosaurus that dwarfs an accompanying model of Giganotosaurus. The collection is small but has a big impact and bears witness to the amazing discoveries in Patagonia in the last 30 years. Reconstructions based on the Patagonian fossils can now be seen in the Fernbank Museum in Atlanta, GA, and the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, however seeing the original fossils in Patagonia is a special treat.
