Museo de Antropologia de Salta, Salta

3.6
#5 of 17 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.

  • Currently under renovation. However, it is possible to see a collection of tips of arrows, vases, ornaments and a funerary vessel with the bones of a child. To one side is the access to the stairs that lead to the Summit of Cerro San Bernardo.
