Museo de Antropologia de Salta, Salta
(3.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Come face to face with millennia-old mummies at Museo de Antropologia de Salta. The attractive museum displays the less-than-ideally conserved mummies, as well as a range of artifacts from the indigenous peoples who lived around Salta before colonization. Climb up a steep hill to get to the museum, which also serves as a scientific research institute and regulatory body in the fields of archeology and paleontology. Bring a Spanish speaker along with you, as the museum doesn't offer any information in English. Use our Salta vacation builder to arrange your visit to Museo de Antropologia de Salta and other attractions in Salta.
