Glaciarium Review

This new glacier museum gives you an entertaining and educational walk through the formation and life of glaciers in the world (and in particular in Patagonia), the effects of climate change, as well as temporary art exhibitions. A 3D film about the national park and plenty of brightly lit displays along with the stark glacier-shaped architecture give it a modern appeal. Don't miss out of the Glaciobar—the first ice bar in Argentina—where you can don thermal suits, boots, and gloves and drink a few cocktails in below-zero temperatures. Your whiskey on the rocks will be served with none other than 200-year-old glacier ice from Perito Moreno!
