A commented-illustrated catalogue of non-avian dinosaurs housed at Museo de La Plata, Argentina is presented. This includes the type material as well as Antarctic specimens as well. The arrangement of the material was made in a phylogenetic fashion, including systematic rank, type material, referred specimens, geographic and stratigraphic location, and comments/remarks, when necessary. A total of thirteen type specimens of non-avian dinosaurs are housed at the collection of Museo de La Plata, including eight sauropods, one theropod, one ornithischian and three ichnotaxa. There are also four Antarctic specimens, one of which is a holotype, whereas other correspond to the first sauropod dinosaur registered for that continent.
