As part of the Isla Martillo penguin tour, a stop at the museum on the grounds of Estancia Haberton was interesting and the guides explained the displays very well. Worth a half hour.

Part of the tour of Estancia Haberton. Haberton is the launching point to Hammer Island and the Penguins. Nice to see while you are there to see many whale bones but this museum is not a destination in itself.
