Argentina. El calafate



Through its evocative architecture that mimics the glacier walls, GLACIARIUM is a place inhabited by interactive and entertaining visual and auditory stimuli that contribute to the knowledge of glaciers and Patagonian Continental Ice field. Entering the museum, the immersing ice-melting water sound leads to a series of dioramas that recreate the glaciers’ most characteristic features and boards that tell about ice formation and explorers and scientists’ history. Pictures of great Argentinian photographers like Florian Von der Flecht, Daniel Wagner and Andres Bonetti captivate everybody’s eyes. The Southern Patagonian Ice field and all the Patagonian glaciers are represented, seen from every possible perspective; from a look at a glacier in an over-flight to the experience of being inside a glacier.
