    Interesting the tour of the Museum, to understand the culture and history of Gaucho. Well maintained, re-fuel if you're going to San Antoniio de Areco. Free entrance.

    The Museum is beautifully presented, visited him alone and is very well signposted and the next day we join the guided visit (that I was already started, there is an 11: 30 p.m. and another at 5 p.m.) and honestly it was very interesting. Maybe appropriate to make the visit and then visit the Museum to see things more calmly. It is worth to go.

    I don't know if it's because of the floods, but the part is really very small, just a couple of rooms. There are interesting facts, but I expected a lot more. Considering that it's the most interesting thing that is Saint Anthony de Areco I said it all ... To go there only if you are in the area and you have half an hour free to be filled, otherwise it's not worth it.

    Virtual Parkour of the Guiraldes museum. It's free and you will see the origins of the Gauchos there. La pulperia, different kind of horses ornament and tools to guide them, some history, etc. Then you can go and visit the rest of San Antonio de Areco.

    Wonderful place. It should take the kids. It is a part of our past. You should visit and do the tour and then traverse it by itself.

    We were expecting something else. Although history there is enough information, we expected to see more objects, habits and customs of the gaucho itself. After the guided visit of the Museum, Ariel us more insert the Gaucho as an extra service of the Museum where there world if we saw more things even in the field itself with cows and horses. Thanks a lot
