Sufficient reason to visit this museo is the wonderful preserved three story plus lookout house and super curved staircase. The museo contents are precious too, even if aging...the free admission, though very kind, probably makes improvements difficult. You can visit here for a well spent...More

This museum gives you the oppertunity to look at Puerto Madryn in a different way. The musuem is built up in different section/floors. Sea-life, wild-life and the influense of people upon it!
