Museo Argentino De Ciencias Naturales Bernardino Rivadavia - Museum Buenos Aires - Argentina

The Museo de Ciencia Naturales is the second biggest natural sciences museum in Argentina. It is located in Parque Centenario’s west end, and is easily reached by bus or subway. The museum, inaugurated in 1937, houses extensive paleontology collections, the most impressive being the exhibit of species that inhabited Argentine territory during the quaternary period. Children, in particular, enjoy seeing the dinosaurs on display. The exhibits of plant and animal species that currently inhabit the territory are truly informative as well. The Museo de Ciencias Naturales also hosts temporary exhibits and conferences. Two hours should be enough to tour the museum. Guided tours in English must be scheduled in advance.
