What a wonderful initiative giving people without Spanish language skills a book in English (in my case) that translates every display. I liked that, the chronological order of the displays starting..... more »
There are 4 to 5 assembled skeletons which are important for understanding the extinct mammals of South America. I don't know whether skeletons displayed are original or replicas as I don't understand Spanish. Rest of the historic information written on the walls is already known to the scientific world and nothing much for me. Price is very high at something like 255 pesos for this small museum.
Very interesting illustration of the history of Patagonia from 100 million years ago. Our English language guide book was missing some of the information that was displayed in Spanish, but overall, an informative and educational look at the development of one of the most beautiful places on earth.
