Casa Natal de Sarmiento reviews
We were told to visit it by the tourist information centre but to be honest it didn't appeal very much. more »
We had an incredible guide. It is a must do / incredible man and influence on the Latin American continent. Not a fan of museums but would definitely do it again to learn about history again. Thank... more »
We drove 5 km NW of our Hotel Vinas del Sol to a parking garage (60 Ap) near the main Plaza 5th de Mayo. Form here we walked 350 meters NW to visit this museum. An English speaking receptionist... more »
It s fine
Great place if you're into museums and history. It is the birth house of Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, one of the best historical figures of Argentina. it has both audioguide and regular tour guide. A MUST VISIT if you're doing tourism. Plus, the tourism information of the entire state is just in front of it, so you can do two thing in one. There are also statues you can take photos(free) with of both Sarmiento, and some dinosaurs(the dinosaurs are across the street, not on Sarmiento's house)
Historic spot to learn about one of the milestone of Argentina.
I went in the business hours and it was close
