An option that takes us down to new scenarios: a visit to El Calafate Regional Museum shows us the history of this city that will seduce us at every step.
In addition to offering a wide array of outdoor tours, the City of El Calafate presents cultural and historical options, such as a visit to its Regional Museum.
We walked down the main avenue in town, called Avenida Libertador General San Martín. The magnificent building housing the history of El Calafate stands between Río Gallegos and Coronel Rosales Streets.
Two large carts caught our eye at the building façade. It was a sample of what was awaiting inside.
As we entered the old building where the Neighborhood Development Committee used to operate in the past, we felt a change in the atmosphere. We were taken away from the hustle and bustle of the city into a quiet environment smelling of wood and stories that seemed to have frozen in time.
The archeological material on display at the museum includes the classic boleadoras, arrow points and rocks carved by the first dwellers of El Calafate.
