We visited this museum while on a city tour. It offers several floors of artifacts reflecting the history of the area. It doesn't take too long to tour but offers a nice look at local history.

Good overview of Patagonian history and geography, starting with the native indians, the explorers and all the way to today.

Taxidermy of local fauna, embalmed fetuses of whales, plant life, and history of indigenous people are fairly comprehensive.

Life under the Salesian missionaries gives visitors insights into how the church protected natives from European settlers intent upon taking their land and possessions.

There are three levels, each level focuses on different parts of the culture. History of the indigenous people is outlined and explained, the entry cost is very reasonable. Will take about a couple of hours to go through all levels.

Good traditional museum. Could perhaps benefit from some updating. Very eclectic collection with some interesting displays.

Quite a diverse collection of exhibits; natural historry, local civilisations, and much more. As with many small local ventures worthy of a few hours of anyones time to learn more about the locality.

my motivation was to find out about the local tribes before they got delipidated by settlers. Excellent presentation of daily activities and the items, though not very clear abut different tribes and differences. Signage in English and very clear, but very short and limited. Nevertheless, fantastic! Great job, would like to come back to absorb more information.

This little museum displays much more than one would expect. It was begun by the Salesian missionaries who wanted to leave a legacy honoring everything related to the Straight of Magellan and the Patagonia area. As such, it is a mish-mash covering everything possible..... explorers, indigenous people, ship models, tools, stuffed animals, history, culture, documents, etc. There are several levels divided into sections covering specific topics. Two things I found interesting were the replica of the Cave of the Hands (itself interesting) and the wooden cross from the grave of Captain Pringle Stokes. Stokes was the Captain of Darwin’s “Beagle” and died in 1824. The cross was deteriorating so was brought to the museum in 1984 for preservation.....a replica being placed on the grave. Lots of little rooms, lots to see. A very tiny gift shop behind a counter in the lobby had some nice things.
