On weekend afternoon there is guided tour (in Spanish). The best expositions are palaeontology and Argentine science history. Come on weekend and later go to see free show in Centenario Park.

Great for little kids! A lot of facts and reading in Spanish only...Lots of dinosaurs and stuffed animals too. An hour and a half is plenty of time for this.
