  • Excellent service! The girl who we gave the tour very prepared, not spared in providing data on the Foundation of the city of Mendoza. It is a beautiful ride and when salis of the Museum feel more part of the history of argentina.

  • 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.
