The Cabildo is definite worth visiting and viewing its various displays showing local history and artifacts. Additionally there are great views of the plaza from the upper balcony.

Lots of historical exhibits and artefacts but info is only in Spanish and taking photos is not allowed in the rooms. There is a balcony which overlooks the square and a courtyard with old carriages and cars in it. Well worth the visit.

Well, this museum contains some pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial stuff. Unfortunately, the information given was all in Spanish. We went there on a Sunday, and the entrance was free, which was nice.

A great way to get an overview of the Colonial era in Salta (and it's surroundings). Conveniently located just off the central downtown plaza, this lovely old building is beautifully restored and the many rooms and courtyards are filled with an interesting selection of artifacts/art....More

This museum is worth visiting for the building itself which was the governing one in colonial times. The contents of the museum are a varied mixture telling the history of the city.You will need to know Spanish to get more out of your visit.

This is a handsome and extensive neo-Colonial structure housing many rooms with archeological artifacts, furniture, paintings, and so on. There are two courtyards and overall, a good deal of charm about the place. Well worth a visit.
