Side Trips from Buenos Aires Sights



Museo del Mar Review

More than 30,000 seashells are the main exhibit at this attractive, modern museum. The four-story complex has numerous sea-related exhibits, including a petting pool and explanations of marine life and rock formations. You can also check out the café, library, movie theater, and gift shop. The rooftop lookout provides panoramic city views. Puppet shows and kiddie-oriented theater are common during school vacations.
