This place is in a great spot with an old lighthouse lookout. Provided great info on Southern Right Whales, and had some English translations which were good. Some short videos and quite interesting for kids with interactive things.

Wow, beautiful place! I loved it. So peaceful after you see everything to enjoy a cup of hot tea checking out to gulf! Very informative and exceptional design. Don’t forget to hang out upstairs beyond the library.

Beautiful facility with very nice, somewhat artsy, high tech exhibits explaining the wildlife and ecology of the area. Expensive entry fee for foreigners, but it supposedly helps support research. We happened to visit when there was a photo exhibit by Dario Podesta, a local biologist...More

Ecocentro is a must to visit when in Puerto Madryn. It is a smaller oceanography museum that highlights the sea life in the surrounding areas. It boasts a massive skeleton of a whale and of other fishes, and it combines art, species, media and nicely...More

I would have given this 5 stars had the cafe been open. Limited opening times and does vary depending on whether cruise ships are in so worth checking. It can be reached on foot from the terminal (about 5km) along a good pretty flat road....More

Went to this museum with my two young boys, aged 4 and 6. The museum is fairly new and has a beautiful view of the ocean. The museum is quite small but has a wonderful whale exhibit. You enter a darkish room and are made...More

Nice, modern museum a ways out of town and a bit pricey for the few exhibits (Arg peso 190). Lots of information boards, many with English translations. Two good areas are the baleen curtains and the whale song room. We walked there along the coast...More
