Another great dinosaur stop you need to make along with Plaza Huincul. Nice little museum exhibiting the largest carnivorous dinosaur ever discovered - isn't that enough to take a break from driving? Stretch your legs more with a walk around Barrio II and then down to the lake. You'll want to come back and again and spend more time.

I have been here multiple times. It is so cool and lots of things to learn. My wife loves dinosaurs so when we lived in Argentina, we had an opportunity to take her. She loved it. It is also very cheap to tour the museum too

Small but fine museum with a live size Argentinean super dinosaur! The biggest in the world!!! The trip to Vila El Chocon from Neuquén is also very nice. Well worth the journey

I took the local bus from Neuquen to Villa el Chocon to visit this well presented little museum. Although probably not enough for a true enthusiast it is a great overview of the general history of dinosaurs and more specifically the ones that lived locally. After visiting the museum we asked if they could arrange a local guide. They contacted... More
