Glaciarium is a modern Glacier Interpretation Centre, also famous for being an Ice Museum. It is at the southern Patagonian Ice Field, in the town of El Calafate. El Calafate is considered to be a gateway to the glaciers.
It was formally inaugurated on the 17th of January 2011. And the opening ceremony was honoured by the presence of the then President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
EPS Panel Based Technology for Ice Museum
The EPS Panel Based Technology is a winning solution for them due to the property of the panels to be thermally insulated. And further ensuring that the ice structures and glaciers remain the way they are for the longest period of time. This needs to be accomplished without the authorities having to worry about the temperature to be constantly maintained mechanically.
The other features that make EPS Panel Based Technology best suited for the construction of this architectural marvel are:
1) Earthquake Resistant.
2) Cyclone and Blast Resistant.
4) Rapid Installation.

Finally, in addition to the educative purposes of the Glaciarium, there is also an Ice Bar inside the Glaciarium. This makes the entire structure an attraction for any of the age groups. The purposes of the visits vary with the respective age groups.
The patrons are given the caps, gloves and boots before entering the enclosure. Even then, no patron can withstand the cold temperature for more than twenty minutes. This is certainly due to the construction pattern and the thermally insulated walls of the structure. The walls built using the EPS Panels, certainly helps to maintain the temperature as desired.
