Museo Rosa Novak - Museum Puerto San Julián - Argentina

In one of the town’s oldest houses down near the sea is Museo Rosa Novak. This small regional museum focuses on archaeological digs being done near San Julián. One gallery describes the pinturas rupestres at Estancia La María. The caves there are decorated not only with hand prints, but also hunting scenes, groups of running guanaco and geometric designs. Another sala reveals the excavations being done to uncover the history of Spain’s experimental settlement of Floridablanca. Displays also explain the then-novel concept of civilian ruled communities.
