Museo De Historia Regional Y De La Cueva De Las Manos - Museum Perito Moreno - Argentina

Until the new Museo de Historia Regional and the Museo de la Cueva de las Manos are built, they share a common home in Casa Iturrioz. The walls of this historic café are lined with photos of Perito Moreno's early citizens who helped make this one of western Patagonia's principal towns. Various artifacts of theirs are on view. But they weren't the first ones here. The Aónikenk and their ancestors also wandered through these valleys, leaving indelible marks at Cueva de las Manos and other sites. This museum also exhibits photos and remembrances of their culture and achievements.
