  • It is an attraction to visit, the visit with a guide, without free and have keys for all the rooms which gave try it to just not know them and it is more than interesting. You should not miss this visit, as well as the visit to the town, will not take you more than 30 extra minutes and worth knowing it. Very clean the Museum and with very good taste.

  • Beautiful as is all made of stone. You can buy (without entering the Museum) things about clay at very good prices, the fabric very over valued

  • Imperdible!
  • The place is wonderful. It tells the story of the inhabitants of the area very well drafted. The works of art of the artist Cruz are fabulous. The representations give an idea of the way of life of the ancient inhabitants of the area, the Quilmes.
