This is a charming, and in some ways long in the tooth museum, but with some updated displays. The pleistocene animals and the Argentine dinosaurs and mosasaurs are a highlight. The avian section is really good. Along with the science museum in La Plata it is definitely worth a visit.

The Bernardino Rivadavia is one of the best Natural Science museums in Argentina. It has lots of dinosaurs and everything you want to see in a museum.

We were really interested in what we were about to see. And it is true that there were many elements that attracts both kids' and adults' attention. It is unfortunate that it was not taken care of well. It felt abandoned. I hope next time we find it different.

Don't miss this museum. This and "no toces" was the kids favorite. Many very well preserved species, dinasours and modern animals. Beautiful displays. Very clean and a large museum to keep you busy for hours.

For a biologist interested in fossil reptiles and mammals, it's a treat to see some of the wealth of fossils Argentina has to offer. The mollusk display was also impressive. As others have commented, Some of the displays are lacking and very poorly lit. Other older specimens don't appear to have been curated well.

Surprisingly cheap entrance fee, but disappointing from the first minute. Many of the show cases have not even light and one cannot see anything...it started like this in the precious stones area. Later were other cases like this. Lots of dead, stuffed animals, the dinos etc are mostly all fake. The museum is being treated very badly. Dirty with apparently... More

A walk through the huge and interesting building will take you back in time. You are literally walking with dinosaurs, through the museum and there is plenty of species to see. Can recommend to anyone who fancys dinosaurs and other rare animals.

Though this museum is small for the size of Buenos Aires population, it does have considerable wonders to see. The children all around us were completely thrilled about the exhibits of dinosaurs, the buttons to push to hear the calls of different birds, the sand playground next to dinosaur bones. I especially enjoyed the deformed animals and "icky" animal display... More

I visited this museum some years ago and was disappointed with the lack of care (funding?) it was showing. Gave it another shot in July 2016 and to my surprise the museum was back to its glory, in its 200 Anniversary. Museum was packed with kids and their parents, lots of activities going on, displays are renewed, everything is well... More

If you like the subject, it is a must together with the natural science museum at La Plata. The best collection of dinos and actual fauna of Argentina
