The visit to this museum is like a bizarre trip (I did mine after playing with the penguins all afternoon) and you will learn a ton but prepare yourself, the place smells.

This small cetacea museum is brilliant. It sits on the grounds of Estancia Harberton (see separate entry) and was founded by one of the family members. The displays are in the open for the most part (which unfortunately means they are prone to damage from...More

It was included in the tour but I wish I'd stayed in the restaurant. It's one room of whale skeletons and a guide who tells you about whales. I already knew about whales.

The displays look like they were done by 5th graders with crayons, but the staff are proud and knowledgeable of the local ecosystem and wildlife
