Natural Science and Oceanographic Museum – Chalet Pujol in Puerto Madryn.

The Pujol Chalet or Castle is one of the first buildings ever to be constructed in the city of Puerto Madryn, built more tan one hundred years ago by Agustin Pujol, a Spanish businessman who had arrived in Argentina several decades before. After his death and that of his wife, the family decided to donate the house for use as a Natural Science and Oceanographic Museum.
Located on a hill overlooking the sea, this bastion of local architecture contains 9 different rooms distributed amongst three floors where different aspects of nature are represented: Marine Mammals, Invertebrates, Fish, Geology, Paleontology, Birds, Pinnipeds, Botany, Oceanography and Welsh Colonization.
Many of the displays contain dried and preserved animals with information about each, identifying and explaining pertinent information about each species. A Choique (Darwin’s Rhea), a Cormorant and several ducks are just a few of the species you will observe, but without a doubt the primary attraction is that of a Giant Squid, displayed in the main hall.
Located just a few blocks from the bus station, the exact address is the corner of Domec Garcia Street and Menendez Street and the telephone number is (0280) 445-0533
