  • If you're curious by the history of the place that you are visiting, it is recommended. Mostly because the city of Mendoza suffered several earthquakes that left few traces of its past in its history, thus here you will show very little of what is left, but going to explain the city's past

  • The Museum is self-guided with much information, well presented. There are guides available to ask questions or learn more about a topic about which you have interest. They are very friendly and predisposed to give the information required and very qualified. It covers not only the Foundation, also issues such as the use of water, the Huarpes, etc. Highly recommended.
