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.

An easy In-the-square experience. The building might be as interesting as the collection and there were various "stories" available for telling about different periods, leaders, religious aspects, money and coinage (which, given Argentina's financial struggles can well be placed in a museum).

When I first entered I didn't...More

Exclusive (they said) but expensive for artisanal products where you can actually find just right the artisanal market outside the premises for a way better price than this place offers.

This museum is right at the square and worth a visit and very interesting but essentially all the information was in Spanish so foreign visitors do not get the full benefit of the visit. The building is old and good and they have done a...More

With the exception of the opening audio presentation, it's all in Spanish. So if you don't read Spanish you will be stumbling, but it's still rather obvious what's going on and it's only 20 pesos to enter so it's well worth your time. Lots of...More

This historic townhouse is splendid and it is really worth spending some time in its patios and balcony. The exhibition is certainly less interesting unless you're a fan of paintings of old generals or of parts of destroyed churches. There are however a few informative...More
