I understand this museum has recently reopened after rebuilding, and it still has ongoing work. Even now it is a very interesting place to learn about the arrival of the Welsh immigrants to Patagonia, and the initial struggles they had to overcome.

The day I went to walk that part of the coast the museum itself was closed, but there is a circuit with explanations on what happened, there is a memorial with the names of the first Walesmen that came in the "Mimosa" and the view is really nice.
