Take a tour of an informative institution proudly dedicated to preserving local culture and traditions at Museo Gauchesco y Parque Criollo Ricardo Guiraldes. Opened in 1938 in a purpose-built building on an almost 90 hectare (222 acre) plot of land, this museum takes the form of an old estate surrounded by a moat. A drawbridge marks the entrance, while colonial tiling on the roof and whitewashed walls remain the attraction's main features. The theme carries on inside, with several rooms filled with artifacts dedicated to explaining the local culture and the artistic, engineering, and agricultural heritage of the area.
