Great to visit.

This small museum has a great collection of stone petroglyphs and other items from the pre Hispanic era. Very interesting and well worth the visit.

This museum should not be missed. There is an especially good collection of pottery and stone pieces covering a wide period of time. The items are well displayed and the explanations informative. Personally I would like this informative material to be presented in a larger print format. I was squinting all the time. But the explanations were worth the "tired"... More

This little museum in the beautiful town of Cachi is very special. You really get the feel of the ancient past of the area. The curator was very helpful in trying to explain the genuine Diaguita petroglyphs to me, as it was all in Spanish.
