  • Experience q We live with my wife. It was extremely interesting to go through the history of glaciers and how they are generated. Very conformtable and professionally armed space. 1st world level

  • Excellent experience. Very good facilities, neat display, very documented and scientific, nice, easy to understand, very, very interesting. Perfect combination of science and history. Very dynamic and gripping. Very good 3D pelytic and the whole sample in general. It's worth it. Only 10 minutes by car from the center of Calafate. Everything from the outside appearance, the reception, the incredible view and good taste of the bar, the toilets, the lockers, catch from the beginning. And then, of course, comes the best. What I didn't like: the pessimistic drama of the last exhibition about the earth's health, ecological and climatological problems. Something very common today, presented with an unpleasant drama, in very bad taste in moments and images. It wasn't necessary. It's NOT a novel topic, we talk about it all the time. I'd put something more excited for the visitor as a closing of the show.
