  • Best of my trip. You can not believe so much together wonder product of the genius of its creator, artist Hector Cruz we know to whom and with kindness and simplicity told us about his work. You should be obligatory in schools. A monument to the creativity, art and love to a place. Not to be missed. $70 entry. It is worthwhile. You get micro from Tafí or San Miguel without problems

  • I would call more than Museum art exhibition. Although they have some else that one would see in a museum the most of the above is the work of Héctor Cruz. It must be recognized that the place is very nice and is much enjoyed the art related to the culture of the indigenous peoples of our country. However the guided tour is a little hurried and there are many things that are replicas. Crafts for sale selection is very nice but need to know that elsewhere more in the North or in the own positions of local craftsmen are available at best price. Finally, a nice place to visit but knowing that exposure is more artistic than historical
