On weekend afternoon there is guided tour (in Spanish). The best expositions are palaeontology and Argentine science history. Come on weekend and later go to see free show in Centenario Park.

Great for little kids! A lot of facts and reading in Spanish only...Lots of dinosaurs and stuffed animals too. An hour and a half is plenty of time for this.

We have already visited the similar museum in La Plata and were thinking whether to visit this one or not. I'm very glad we did eventually decide to go. The museum has an extensive collection of shells of different sizes, shapes and colors. Also, there...More

This is a charming, and in some ways long in the tooth museum, but with some updated displays. The pleistocene animals and the Argentine dinosaurs and mosasaurs are a highlight. The avian section is really good. Along with the science museum in La Plata it...More

The Bernardino Rivadavia is one of the best Natural Science museums in Argentina. It has lots of dinosaurs and everything you want to see in a museum.

Don't miss this museum. This and "no toces" was the kids favorite. Many very well preserved species, dinasours and modern animals. Beautiful displays. Very clean and a large museum to keep you busy for hours.

A walk through the huge and interesting building will take you back in time. You are literally walking with dinosaurs, through the museum and there is plenty of species to see. Can recommend to anyone who fancys dinosaurs and other rare animals.
