  • This museum is beautiful. Very complete, it has the history of our province since its founding.

  • One of the most important museums of the province since it keeps the history of the beginnings of our land. They have a guide, how convenient would be to consult the timetable of guided tours at any tourism office. The ride is short but you can visit the ancient fountain and the ruins of San Francisco. Very educational and attractive. I recommend it!

  • This was the place of the original City hall, then a slaughter house, a market and now finally a museum. You can see the old foundation for the original building. It has some pre-colombian artifacts. It is all in spanish but you can understand most of whats going on. Regular price is $30, students pay $14
  • Nice small local museum with modern displays and local history.
  • Historic place. A somewhat small exhibition. Nice guides.
