The Museo de Ciencias Naturales is a classic old museum building, right down to the sabertooth cats flanking the entry. The exhibits are of traditional design and are a treasure trove of botanical, zoological, geological and paleontological artifacts, with the greatest strength in Argentina. The Museo is home to an internationally recognized faculty of research scientists, and this is reflected in the quality of the exhibits. Take the guided tour, especially if unfamiliar with Argentine flora and fauna. My guide was very helpful and informative.

Nice museum of natural science in La Plata. Very small entrance fee. Excellent collection of dinosaur fossils.

Lots of bones and some taxidermy with other stuff thrown in...I guess OK but I felt they did a poor job with the upkeep of exhibition spaces-everything looks dusty and left to languish. The building itself is beautiful and the location in the park is nice.

Wait for the guided tour and you will never forget the experience. It is a great museum with dinosaurs, mega fauna, etc. You will love it. We miss the upper floor (antropology) and we are going to return for sure.

It is around 2 hours in car from Buenos Aires tough.

The Museo de La Plata is in some ways old-fashioned, but obviously it is being refurbished and improved. The collections (especially the palaeontology collection) are huge, and the late 19th century building itself is an architectural marvel. This museum ranks among the greatest natural history museums in the world and is well worth a visit.
