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.

  • A GEM that one must not miss when you walk to San Antonio de Areco, go to 12:30 or 3 pm which is the timetable of guided tours, take it the Guide are 10! Next to the Museum is the Blanquita, old-fashioned general store, accompanied by centenarian trees. Then cross the river and reach the Centre of the village with silverware, braiding and saddlery businesses in the vicinity of the central square. A few blocks away the copper pot La Chocolaterie, DELICATESSEN that produce! Don't miss the Church opposite the plaza.
