El Calafate Historical Interpretation Center Tours

El Calafate Historical Interpretation Center, a small museum in El Calafate, covers a big chunk of history — 100 million years of history. Recently renovated, the museum provides an excellent introduction to the natural and human history of southern Patagonia from the time it was formed through to today.

The collection, divided into five rooms, includes fossilized skeletons of dinosaurs and mega mammals found in the area, as well as recreations of prehistoric cave paintings and collections of objects, tools and relics from the native Aonikenk culture and colonizers who showed up later.

Practical Info

Plan to spend an hour or so at the Interpretation Center at the start of your visit, as it will give you a better appreciation for the rest of your time in Patagonia.
