What You Can Expect
First, head to the Paleontological Museum, widely known for its interesting, authentic exhibits. Here, you’ll see original artifacts and ancient fossils as you tour several chronologically ordered rooms, each featuring a distinct environment according to the characteristics of the time period.
See a replica of the Cueva de las Manos (Cave of the Hands), a famous UNESCO World Heritage-listed cave in the valley of the Pinturas River. This life-like replica will transport you back to ancient times, giving you a unique look at what it was like to live in those caves some 13,000 years ago.
Also amazing is the bird room, where fossil reconstructions hang from the ceiling, making it seem as if they’re flying overhead. Don’t miss the room devoted to sea fossils and an interesting video about the origins and evolution of the universe.
After your tour of the museum, hop in the car and make your way to the nearby town of Gaiman, located near the River Chubut. Spend time with your knowledgeable guide walking along the charming streets to get a feel for the Welsh atmosphere -- Gaiman is actually the cultural and demographic center of the main region of Welsh settlement in Argentina. Stop by a café to sample some Welsh tea (own expense), prepared according to unique standards and accompanied by homemade pastries.
You’ll then be driven back to the Puerto Madryn port to conclude your tour.
