We were walking in the center of Córdoba and saw the house that is beautifully kept. The guides were lounging in the hall, I doubt they speak languages, we paid our entrance fee and walked round the house, we are Argentine and know a bit of the history, the house show how the original owners lived with antique furniture and...

This museum was nothing special, but an okay way to spend a couple of hours. Most of the rooms are decorated as they would have been in colonial times, with accompanying info. There are also a couple of rooms with items like weapons, silver, crockery and even musical instruments. The info has English translations but they are appalling - actually... More

A nice, quiet museum based on a mansion belonging to a wealthy familiy. You go through the various rooms, to some extent resembling the function they would have had back in the day. Among other things you could visit the private quarters of the house where the husband, wife and children lived the personal life. Quite interesting.

This shows you how early life was for a Spanish Grandee governor and his family. Notice all the courtyards and the lack of hallways for communicating through the rooms. On one courtyard, I found five pigeon nests. It's a quiet place.

A lovely, spacious mansion that really holds a feeling for what daily life was like for the rich and powerful in eighteenth century Cordoba. Loved the authenticity, though don't see need to go as far as maintaining three hundred years of dust on everything. The English versions of the room descriptions are appalling; as if given under torture by someone... More

The museum offers a good overview of life in colonial times in Cordoba. Much is still original. During holidays, it is often closed, we can recommend the coffee shop Charlie Chaplin on the other side - very nice service.
