  • For the visitors of Cachi, don't forget to visit the archaeological museum. Although it is small, and is traversed in a short time, it is very clear, ordering and graphic. It is completely renovated and glad to take it. Invited to the assessment and reflection on a part of our somewhat forgotten history. The cost of entry is very low.

  • He had visited the Museum a few years ago and on this last visit, I was happy to see how it has been refurbished and embellished as well as be ordered very explanatory way. You can see archaeological discoveries that were made in the area that invite appreciation and awareness of that part of the story that was quite neglected. It is worth visiting it :)

  • The Museum facility is classic, and placing artifacts in poorly lit display cases of the four rooms it impoverishes the usability. But the explanation is clear and comprehensive. I still don't understand why it is forbidden to photograph without flash of pieces on display every day at the electric light.

  • Descepcionante. We went to this museum because we had read reviews that they indicated that there were more than 10 thousand pieces in exhibition. We toured it in 30 minutes at most. Not is if it will be because we were in may, but there was little to see, more petroglyphs than anything else.
