Quien se ocupa de la recepción es sumamante amable. La entrada es cara. Es un centro de interpretacion con una parte dedicada a dinosaurios interesante y otra dedicada a temas de gènero y a la conquista del despierto con una vision absolutamente sesgada y parcial.
ME EQUIVOQUE DE MUSEO YA QUE ESPERABA APRENDER ALGO SOBRE LA HISTORIA DE LA FORMACION DE CALAFATE.

Es un lugar bien logrado. Es algo más para hacer en la El Calafate (donde no hay mucho para hacer barato y a resguardo del clima), con mucha y muy bien contada Info. Muy didáctico. Se percibe adoctrinamiento la historia reciente sobretodo de los pueblos originarios. De todas formas aprendí cosas interesantes y si uno va con ideas formadas la provocación es mínima. Por ahi Tenés que leer Escuchar cosas inverosímiles como por ejemplo que los pueblos originarios no son machistas que practicaban el travestismo las mujeres abortaban que la mujer estaba a la par del hombre y Qué eran liberales con la sexualidad de las solteras
Y que la llegada del hombre blanco Los sometió al patriarcado y a la moralidad machista y retrograda de la iglesia. Que los españoles bla, bla, bla como si los originarios no se invadían, mataban y sometían entre ellos.

El lugar es increíble, hay mucha información contando con mapas conceptuales, fotos, y cosas físicas. Hay muchas épocas diferentes para visitar durante el recorrido y cada una de ellas está perfectamente explicada y mostrada. Personalmente la que más disfrute fue la parte paleontológica, cuenta con información sobre los dinosaurios y fósiles de algunos que habitaron la Patagonia. La atención es un 10/10, muy buena onda y cuentan con mesas al salir para tomar un café.

Un recorrido super pedagógico de la historia de la región. Un mapa conceptual a la par de dos líneas de tiempo, una regional y una mundial, para ayudarte a ubicar temporal y espacialmente en la historia Patagonica.
Dandole la importancia que merecen los pueblos y animales originarios de la región, pilares fundamentales para que la misma se lo que es hoy.
Lo recomiendo.

Apesar de bem pequeno, é muito informativo. Conta a história da glaciação, dos povos originários até a atualidade. Porém as informações estão todas escritas em pôsteres e depois de um tempo fica cansativo ler.. no final tem uma sala que passa um filme resumindo tudo, o que foi a melhor parte.

Petit musée intéressant et bien fait qui peut prendre pas mal de temps si on veut s'y intéresser. Affichage principalement en espagnol mais un petit livret est disponible dans plusieurs langues à l'entrée.

Ademas del Glaciar Perito Moreno, Santa Cruz y Calafate tienen una vida que contar desde sus orígenes....
Un viaje tanto por la riqueza natural, desde el punto de vista paleontológico y el grito silencioso de las civilizaciones que habitaron la región sorprendiendo aún hoy por su desarrollo político - cultural.
Es una visita imperdible para conocer este lugar maravilloso y ademas disfrutar de la calidez y la amabilidad de una charla con mate por medio.
