Museo Río Seco

Museum in Punta Arenas

The pet project of the Caceres brothers, this funky homespun museum is a delightful detour for fans of natural history. Imaginative displays use fine naturalist drawings and painstakingly restored skeletons of seabirds, sea lions and whales to give a picture of life on the strait. Call ahead before visiting, as they might be cleaning whale bones out back.

Volunteers are welcome with a one-week minimum.
