Don’t miss the films of local glaciers in action. The exhibit are good for kids and adults but the climate change walkthrough at the end is a little heavy handed without actually offering any suggestions for how to help as an individual. All in all,...More

A modern museum with cool displays and an enjoyable, albeit cheesy, 3D show, this was a great way to learn more about how glaciers form, move, recede, grow, and why we need to care about their conditions. It is a pricey visit even by American...More

Visited the Glacerium via the free shuttle bus from El Calafate; the service was on time and reliable. The Glacerium itself was very informative with lots of photographs and visual aid - most in Spanish and English. There is a small shop and cafe neither...More

We flew from Bariloche to El Calafate and the timing of the planes versus the buses meant we had a spare afternoon in El Calafate. We missed the first bus looking for it so what you need to know is that there is a free...More

Museum is located outside town and presents history and facts about glaciers. Kids liked it and there were a couple of movies (one with 3D) that kids loved. The rest of the exposition is adult oriented with complex explanations and lots of texts to read....More

Only go if nothing else is possible, like when the weather is poor. Bery high and unjustified entrance fee.
