  • The architecture of the Museum is beautiful and shocking. The sample is very complete though there were only 2 rooms open when we went, and around closed 4. It is a forced one-way ride to Tafi. The input comes out $70 but is worth the penalty.

  • 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.
