Glaciarium Ice Museum

Glaciarium is a modern interpretation glaciological centre, and one of the few Glacier Museums in the world. The understanding of glaciers and environmental awareness are the main subjects.

Glaciarium Ice Museum - El Calafate

The architecture is quite unique and the façade of the building is reminiscent of the face of a glacier. The exhibits include models, dioramas, photographs, screens, interactive representations, a 3D documentary, and other modern resources that provide an enriching experience.

Glaciarium is open from 9 AM to 8 PM during the tourist season, and from 11 AM to 8 PM during winter (May to August).

You can get there from downtown El Calafate in a shuttle service running from the building of Provincial Tourism Department every hour. Ask for Glaciarium transfer.
If you decide to go on your own, take Route 11, the same that leads to the Perito Moreno Glacier, and drive 6 km. from the center of El Calafate.
