Reviewed November 4, 2012

Just as the title suggests it is interesting place to visit but for tourists information in a different language would be great. Maybe having brochures for people who are no fluent in spanish.

“Great short stop if you are looking for Paraguay's history.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was a very nice little stop where you can learn about Paraguay's history in the spot where it happened. The curator even speaks great English if you would rather hear the information in English. I totally recommend it if you are looking for a way to fill an after noon. It will take you about 30-45 minutes or so to see.

“A place to know about Paraguay's history”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

It was really interesting to know about Paraguay's independance history...
The exhibition shows also how were the house in the period of the independance.
Free entrance, near from downtown.
The only thing that will be bad for people who don't understand Spanish, is that they only have explanations in their language.

“The revolution started here”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

This little museum is the house where meetings were held planning the push for independence. We couldn't get the whole story because very little information was available in english and our limited spanish only took us so far, Intriguing alley out back played an important role -- now covered in plaques commemorating the heros of the independence movements. Surprising number of guards for sucha small museo.
