Museum history

The house, known as Chalet Pujol, was built between 1915 and 1917 with materials brought from Europe. It belonged to the Spanish merchant Agustín Pujol and his wife, Anita Howell Jones, a Welsh descendant.

His heirs decided to donate the property to Chubut Province, and so it opened its doors in 1972 as the Regional Museum of Natural Sciences and Oceanography, renamed in 2006 as the “Museum of Man and the Sea”.
