Museo Paleontol贸gico Egidio Feruglio - Museum Trelew - Argentina

Arguably one of the best museums in Argentina, Museo Paleontol贸gico Egidio Feruglio is a must-see for paleontology enthusiasts. The museum, which contains roughly 1,700 fossils, takes visitors on a paleontological tour through history. On permanent display are bones of dinosaurs that once inhabited this area, including Argentinosaurus, the largest-known vertebrate in the world. Tours are free, and English, German, and Italian speaking guides are available. The museum has full handicapped access, and even offers guides for the blind. This museum is a great place to bring the kids.
