#1 of 54 Museums in Montevideo
The personal nature of the museum I think is wonderful as it really helps connect you to the tradegy and helps you understand the somewhat uplifting messages which show through in regards to teamwork, common goals...
Every year that my wife Corinne, family members and I are in Montevideo we always visit the Museo Andes 1972, and we rate this as the number one must see attraction in the city.

This beautiful early 20th century palace, reminiscent of Versailles, now houses a decorative arts museum with Uruguayan furniture, clocks, paintings, and the most amazing colorfully-painted pianos imaginable.
Once you finish with the visit, you can stroll around Plaza Zabala, with its magnificent collection of trees, and the monument to the founder of our City.

That may be typical because it's well off the beaten path but this small intimate museum is highly recommended.
Free entry, some nice oil paintings.

Ok, or just go to the British Museum where they basically stole...err, I mean, are "preserving" all the same items, but that's another conversation.

It now contains a fascinating museum combining the history of the country with that of each of the presidents.
On one side of Plaza Independencia, this free museum is certainly worth a visit with its displays on Uruguay's government and presidents and their trappings.

The museum staff were very welcoming and gave us a personal tour through the exhibit and conjoined garden.
I have no idea how the cannibis experience in Uruguay will evolve, but it's well worth visiting this museum to witness its pioneer days.

The art exhibits are typically thought provoking (on this occasion the one about the disappeared students of Mexico was captivating), while the attached natural history museum (though small) is well done.
Though the art exhibits were interesting during my visit, what really makes this place worth the trip is the building within which it is located.

Inside, there are artifacts related to general Spanish / Columbian maritime history, Uruguayan naval history and Antarctica, but the star attractions undoubtedly have to do with the Battle of the River Plate, 1939...

It’s a terrific space, filled with wonderful cars from across the entire history of automobiles.
Though all reviews have mentioned having the place alone, I was lucky enough to go on Museos en la Noche and the museum was actually quite busy.
