Ernesto Bachmann Municipal Museum
We were returning from our stay in the south, and suddenly we started to see signs saying dinosaurs in two kilometers, these appeal to us and so we entered the town of The Chocón, about 80 km from the city of Neuquén. Here dinosaur footprints painted on the streets lead you to the museum that specialises in paleontology. The museum was created with the intention of showing all the fossil material that has been found in the area, which is substantial. The most important fossil that saw there was the "Giganotosaurus Carolini" which was discovered in The Choqcón in 1993. This huge dinosaur is the largest carnivore known up to now in the world, it measures : total length 14 meters.
