    It really is a must-see Museum with much culture and history. Ideal to take many pictures. Excellent so they can learn the little ones with much art, Giant sculptures. It has guides to understand much more.

    Spectacular setting. The didactic super model to understand the geography of the Calchaquí valleys. Take each space, an unforgettable experience that captures the attention of diversity of ages and tastes.

    We were with high expectations but arriving not leave surprise you with some sculptures of large size, mostly in stone, also has a museum where the guides make you a short tour through the history of the area. Recommended.

    It is an awesome place. Many hands and working hours were needed to build the Museum. Not to be missed.

    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
