Museo de Antropologia de Salta, Salta

3.6
#4 of 13 in Museums in Salta
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.

  • Visit this Museum, located behind the monument to general Güemes, is part of the pre-Columbian history of the NOA.

  • Interesting museum you can learn a little more about the culture of the aborigines, although this very limited this great Museum closed but spacious rooms. There are some things missing a description or this messy, (in the room for children there is an image that seems to worship the fertility).

  • The Museum was in replacement of materials, but just could make a smaller tour, was very interesting; but most interesting was even talk that we had with the girl who was in that moment in charge, who told us many things and kindly gave us a book.

Where to stay in Salta

Salta's status as the tourist hub of northwestern Argentina means that a wide array of accommodations has sprung up throughout the city. The majority are concentrated around the city's grid-like center, surrounding Plaza 9 de Julio. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, go southeast and explore the area around Parque San Martin. You can opt for anything from a healthy range of budget accommodations, including hostels and small guesthouses, all the way to luxury hotels.
