The Museo de la Plata is a large building that is 135 meter long with a neoclassical façade. It contains 3 million relics and fossils, as well as a 58,000-volume library. Its annual visitor count of over 400,000 is a testament to the importance of the collection.
The museum was inaugurated way back in 1888 with contributions from respected anthropologists and naturalists from Argentina and abroad. Visitors can see large mammal fossils, trilobites, entomological, and botanic exhibits.
There are also parts that feature early South American history like the Incan Empire, and even Ancient Egyptian exhibits that focus particularly on Ramesses II.Places nearby:
