It has a small museum and cinema, a photo exhibit of natives in its corridors, and outside are statues, maps and old rural machinery.

We stumbled onto this museum while walking the main street of El Calafate. I would recommend seeing it. While we were there, there was an exhibit of native pictures from the late 1800s and early 1900s. In addition, there is information on the man; Perito Francesco Moreno which I found interesting.

Not much to see here but it's worth a visit prior to your glacier visit since you can learn a lot about what you're going to see and experience in the park.

This is a good place, you can stop and get information about the calafate area. Clean and give to you good info, is better go before the trip to glaciars. Near is the #1 house at calafate, only take photo but can show you this house almost 100 years ago
