This museum has 2 sections. A natural history one downstairs with some realistic taxidermy and brief explanations in Spanish and English. Upstairs is an historical section. The explanations are only in Spanish. However there are booklets in English which give general background but do not explain all the individual items. It is definitely worth an hour to visit.

Small museum located in Centro Civico. First floor is a natural history museum showing the plants and animals of the Patagonia Region. Upstairs covers the indigenous people of the region, Spanish colonialization and the formation of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Very interesting. Small admission fee.

OK little museum about regional fauna and flora, original native inhabitants and the Europeans who started Bariloche in the late 1800s. Not a peep about the war criminals who came here after WWII and lived quite openly.

This building is quite large, in the city center where two roads go underneath the upper museum floor. The contents are well laid out and informative. The section on the flora and fauna had good specimens, we've seen a good number of the birds while we've been here. The history of civilization before the Europeans arrived shows a cultured and intelligent people that were over run and their resources stripped. Identical to neighboring terrirories. 150 peos entry is very reasonable. two levels, no elevator

For a small price you get a pretty good overview of the indigenous history, colonization and subsequent settling of the area. Lots of interesting photos from the 1850’s on. There were English placards for most of the sections. It was a little like visiting someone’s attic.

After our beautiful Small Circuit tour , we asked our tour guides ( Aleyen and Roberto- Limay Travel) to drop us off at the public square to visit the Francisco Moreno Museum that we heard a lot about in El Calafate. The story goes that Moreno out negotiated the Chilean counterpart and the British arbitrator about settling the formal Andean border between the two countries. He convinced them the the border should not strictly be the continental divide but go further to see where the snowfall rivers actually wound up heading out to see. This approach was based on Moreno's exquisite appreciation of the arid fauna and geology on the leeward side of the Andes, further south in Patagonia.

As we guessed, this museum artifacts profiled his great devotion to the natural beauty of Patagonia and how he hoodwinked the Chilean negotiator to get almost 1 million square kilometers (albeit Chile had recently picked up the Atacama Desert mines after the Pacific War).You should have a good sense of Argentine-Chilean History and an appreciation of arid steppe geology and biology ( think the Southwest in the US) before venturing here

Good ethnographic information and an excellent collection of fabrics and artifacts. Good history of the genocide of the Mapuche and other peoples. Worth reading the curated info.

This Museum is important because some pieces of history can be seen- There are some military uniforms , some photographs .
Animals of the fauna are embalmed , and something of the flora
Don´t miss is not so big but value to have an idea about the nature surrounding the National Park

Museo de la Patagonia is a great spot if you're curious about the region's history, as well as the tribes that inhabited it, their everyday life, and the battles they had to fight.
