Good for Old-Timers
Mar 2020
If you’re a first-timer to Buenos Aires, you’ll be revelling in Recoleta, partying in Palermo, and feasting like a financier. Museums? BA’s full of them: Beaux Artes, Decorative Arts, you name it. But if you’re interested in natural science, you might want to spend some time at the Rivadavia Museum, even though it’s way down at #16 on TA reviewers’ museum list. The Rivadavia is particularly good for old timers. Very, very, very old timers. Half a billion years ago, Earth had a supercontinent we now call Gondwana. Pedants say Gondwana wasn’t a 100% super-continent because it did not include what is now Murmansk, Manchester, and Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. I’ve been to both Manchester and Moose Jaw, and frankly, I think not containing either would have made Gondwana even more super; I doubt Murmansk would have leant anything to Gondwana’s charm. Gondwana’s Antarctic heartland is still at the South Pole, but the other bits and pieces broke off and headed toward the tropics where they became India, Africa, Australia and, yes, Argentina. Pertinent to the Rivadavia museum, several decades ago, Argentine palaeontologists began discovering a wide range of wonderful ancient animals, some of the earliest ever found, in places like Patagonia. This museum houses some of their most fabulous finds. More recent Argentine animal-life is interesting as well: armadillos the size of Volkswagens, elephantine ground-sloths, a llama as big as a rhinoceros, and that caveman favourite: sabre-toothed tigers. Because the Rivadavia Museum encompasses all the natural sciences, they’ve got halls full of sea-shells, rocks and minerals, a meteor that’s 93% iron / 7% nickel, and even an aquarium with live South American catfish. A more impressive fish, thankfully extinct, is the giant megalodon shark “as big as seven elephants,” whose three-meter jaws are a prime photo-op. (See Exhibition Hall, Iron Meteor, Old Suckermouth, and Super-Jaws photos). But the museum’s strong suit is ancient life going back to, and beyond, the Age of Dinosaurs : the revolutionary finds in Argentina. If you’re pressed for time, go to the Dinosaur Hall first; then hustle through the other halls with whatever time you have left over (see Dinosaur Hall photo). The curatorship of the Dinosaur Hall is head and shoulders over anything else in the museum. While the approach isn’t identical for every specimen, generally you’ll find a name plate with information in Spanish about the beast, and an artist’s impression of what it looked like in the flesh, beside the skeleton (see Austroraptor cabazai and Austroraptor Info photos). I hope the curators consider translating some info into English and Portuguese, since I suspect almost all visitors speak at least one of those three languages. However, you can easily read the scientific names and period when the species existed. The skeletons are jury-rigged into postures that the animals would have been in while alive, with some remarkable results: thanks to the eye sockets, you sometimes can get the unnerving feeling that you’re staring face-to-face with the beast (see Bonatitan reigi and Bonatitan reigi 2 photos). The Amargasaurus cazaui is grazing peacefully; the Pleisiosaur is flying overhead looking for prey; and the Megaraptor nahumhuaiquii has just captured its meal for the day by the neck (Amargasaurus cazaui, Pleisiosaur, and Megaraptor nahumhuaiquii photos). The largest skeleton in the room, the imposing Patagosaurus holds his head high, on the lookout for something: either food or danger (Patagosaurus photo). Quite a few of the dinosaurs are named after where in Argentina the species was first discovered. For example, Talenkauen santacrusensus got its name because it was discovered near frigid Viedna Lake in Santa Cruz province. A few of the beasts’ scientific names were howlers: for example Piatnitzkysaurus floresi: a curious name, eh? Surprise! It was first identified by a couple of fellows named Alejandro Piatnitzky and Miguel Flores. I’m relieved to learn that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was not—repeat not—first identified by an Irishman named Rex Tyrone. Oh well, a clever stab at immortality, but sooner or later Al and Mike, like the rest of us, will be as extinct as the dinosaur who bears their name. (Talenkauen santacrusensus and Piatnitzkysaurus floresi photos). In a few cases, you see the bones as they were discovered in the earth, but then get a best-guess life-sized recreation of what the creature actually looked like (Taniwhasaurus antarcticus for example, a reptilian version of a marlin, and nothing I’d want to encounter at the end of my fishing line, see photo). Some of the dinosaurs in this museum are very, very ancient indeed: T. rex lived about 65 million years ago, toward the end of the Mesozoic Era. But this museum’s Guaibasaurus candelariensis lived back in the upper Triassic Era, more than 200 million years ago! (Guaibasaurus candelariensis photo). And little Eudibamus lived 280 million years ago or more (Eudibamus photo). A eudibamus isn’t a dinosaur, or even a reptile. If you sort of work like lawyer, but you’re not really a lawyer, you’re a paralegal. If you sort of work like a reptile (sauria), but you’re not really a reptile, you’re a parasaur, like Eudibamus. Reptiles hadn’t been invented yet 280 million years ago: but given time—lots and lots of time, the progeny of little fellows like Eudibamus would eventually evolve into T. rexes. To put it another way, if you happen to be in your late 20s, take a look at this little fellow: he might not look impressive, but he’s ten million times older than you are! If your daughter is 14, he’s twenty million times older than she is! Practical Info: The museum is open from 1400 to 1900 daily (maximizing the time that school children can see the museum). There’s a modest admission fee. Some construction/renovation is going on at the moment, but most of the museum was open as of my visit. The museum is located within the grounds of Parque Centenario, along with the park’s fountains, amusement rides, observatory and hospital. However, you enter the museum via Av. Patricias Argentinas, the road circling the park: for all practical purposes it’s right beside Av. Angel Gallardo. The closest subway stop is Angel Gallardo on the Red (B) Subte line: that station is actually located on Corrientes: walk a half-block west to Gallardo and turn left; it’s about four blocks down the street. There’s a vending machine cafe in the museum, beside the megalodon shark jaws.

Very good for just 100 pesos!!

It is huge museum, with a very interesting collection of lots of skeletons and stuffed animals. If they increase a little the entrance fee, they could improve the lightning in some dark areas and maybe some air-conditioning on the top floor.

The museum of natural history in Buenos Aires has a nice collection of animals and dinosaurs. Although it gets very hot during the summer it is very much worth a visit. Entrance fee is 50 pesos pp but after 6 of January 2019 it will be 100 pesos pp.

Fun and Lots Cool Animals!
Apr 2018 • Keluarga
The museum was big and fun. A lot of big skeletons and cool foot prints of the dinosaurs. The bottom floor had dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals, along with some modern day birds and ocean creatures. In one room was rocks and minerals and another had an aquarium of fish. The museum was very cool, and I would visit it again.

Awesome collection of dinosaur bones. Exceeded my expectation by 200%.
Mar 2018 • Teman
There are two floors of exhibits. My favourite are the three rooms of dinosaur bone displays. There is one huge room and two smaller ones. I almost missed the two smaller ones. The exhibits include those on paleontology, geology, amphibians, reptiles, and arthropods. There are lots of dinosaur replicas, skeletons, fossils, and much more on display. Be careful to use the map they give you when you pay the 50 pesos per person entry fee. I will attach over 500 photos, including over 85% of the dinosaur display information, and more than 50% of the other displays and information.

This is Argentina, a Spanish speaking country, and as should be expected, the vast majority of the signage and descriptions are in Spanish. Despite knowing little Spanish, I found the displays easy to follow and logically grouped. This is a great place, and I’m happy that I discovered it.

I noticed a complaint in another review about no air conditioning and dirty washrooms. On our visit today, the outside temperature was 28C and a little humid. I found it okay within the museum. Yes, it was a touch on the humid side. And the washrooms, I found to be clean and satisfactory. This is a museum in Argentine, which is a warm climate country. I’ve travelled to over 100 countries, and have toured many places. I found the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales Bernardino Rivadavia to be good to excellent in all areas. Okay, it has little to no ventilation, but so do some modern-day green-energy buildings. We spent two hours in the museum.

From the Sheraton and Park Tower hotels, it is about a 180 pesos taxi ride. Likely from the Hilton BA, the taxi ride would cost about 250 pesos. We took a taxi there and walked back to the Park Tower. The leisurely walk back took about 90 minutes.

Great dinosaur section
Feb 2018 • Pasangan
This museum was in a rather out of the way spot but well worth a visit. The dinosaur section was really well done and you didn't need to understand Spanish to appreciate it. The mineral section was disappointing - very dark and old-fashioned.
