Admittedly we spent a good deal of our visit at the windows overlooking the bay watching the whales that were just below the building. We saw about 6 from the tower here. The displays are interesting, and discuss Patagonian marine life from plankton on up to whales. This would be a great place to start off a trip, as the Ecocentro introduces you to the species that can be seen in the P.Madryn/Penninsula Valdes area - and yes we did see them all! The photos are lovely and the boards are in English and Spanish. There is also a nice cafe here, with a view of the bay for more whale watching (and they make great brownies!)
We discovered that the museum was open from 3pm until 8pm (we arrived here at 2pm) so might be good to check the times before you plan a visit.

This is an interesting "museum" that offers an alternative to the long bus rides to see penguins and other wild life. You will find art work, slide shows, skeletons, a sea life exhibit and great views of the ocean, beach and city. Make sure you climb to the top of the tower. Binoculars and a long lens camera is an asset.

A free shuttle is available at the visitor's center. An entrance fee is charged. You will have to wait for the shuttle to return to the city.
