Fodor's Expert Review Glaciarium

El Calafate Museum/Gallery

This out-of-town glacier museum gives you an educational walk through the formation and life of glaciers (particularly in Patagonia) and the effects of climate change, as well as temporary art exhibitions. A 3-D 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 the Glaciobar —the first ice bar in Argentina—where you can don thermal suits, boots, and gloves, and where a whisky on the rocks means 200-year-old glacier rocks from Perito Moreno.
