La Plata: Places of Interest

Share on:

The La Plata Museum is one of South America’s most important Natural History museums. Modeled after important European museums, construction began in 1884 and took four years to complete.

Permanent exhibitions include rooms dedicated to anthropology, archeology, paleontology, zoology, evolution and even an Egyptian hall with hieroglyphs, ceramics and ancient coffins. Yet another hall is dedicated to the architecture, art and music of Jesuit missionaries and the Guarani communities they aimed to convert. There are also wonderfully curated temporary exhibitions.
