A distance away from Puerto Madryn in the not so quaint/picturesque town of Trelew. The small museum is interesting, especially if you are into dinosaurs! The dinosaur skeleton replics are excellent!

The museum is small but is nice. The personal were very nice. They have a coffe shop and a souvenir shop. You can spend 2 hours keeping the kids busy.

This small modern museum is about 40 minutes by road from Puerto Madryn. It is interesting and well presented, with information in English and Spanish. There is a David Attenborough video to begin with, which relates the discovery, nearby, of the biggest species of dinosaur yet found. Details are also given of the science behind the find and the stages of the research. There are many dinosaur species on display in the rooms and the models are interesting. As you approach the outskirts of the town, there is a vast model too. A small gift shop is a bonus. The town itself, and nearby Gaimin, have history and, the latter, Welsh heritage.
