Fodor's Review

From its perch on a windswept outcrop 4 km (2½ miles) south of the town center, this museum and research center affords excellent views of Madryn's bays and desolate coastline. Inside, thoughtful, well-translated displays introduce you to the area's ocean fauna and seek to promote marine conservation. An invertebrates "touch pool" and a whale-sounds exhibit—which you reach by walking through a curtain imitating baleen plates—are especially good for kids. All the same, the exhibits are a bit scant to justify the astronomical entrance price. A slick gift shop and café are also on-site.
