  • The MIA (Museum of the sugar industry) was put in value in the context of the bicentennial of our country. The architect in charge was Gabriel Miremont who was in charge of many other important museums of our province (Museum railway Tafí Viejo, Sanmartiniano Museum of the Ramada de Abajo, the Museum Nasif Stefano, among others) and national (Evita Museum, Museum Falkland, Museum of the Cabildo de Buenos Aires, Museum of high mountain of Salta, among many others). This museologist put in value the House of Bishop Molina in a modern and striking way. The sugar industry Museum consists of several parts: the Bishop's House (forerunner of the sugar industry in Tucumán) is the main building which dominates the whole. There are other secondary (such as the kitchen and the barn) constructions. Externally, the House presents a facade of two levels typical of the time. Among the materials predominate bricks and even some sectors of adobe are preserved. The plaster is of mud and the property is painted with lime. Also the tradition from the times of the construction of this architectural ensemble at the end of the 18th century, the floors are wood. At the time of construction, the Casa Quinta Colombres was located on the outskirts of the city, in the vicinity of the Salí River, place which was then known as El Bajo. In the House you can admire different objects time (portraits of Heroes Argentines by the famous artist tucumana Lola Mora, collections of old banknotes and coins, inkwells, vases), all very interesting. I emphasize the bed that belonged to del Obispo Colombres and the part devoted to the legend of the family (read about it before you visit the Museum if you don't know the legend). Other places that you can visit is the part added recently, where you can admire different elements related to this industry. All this part consists of posters with information on luxury. On the back of this House-Museum (located within the perimeter of the Park July 9, the Chief of the city) tractors and other elements can be admired. The entire complex is framed by an exquisite grating with allegorical themes to the Museum. Thank you Gabriel Miremeont to put in value this important Museum for my province. My congratulations! Be sure to visit it. Ideal to go with children. I have attached some pictures. Was I helpful?

  • Guided tour gives little information about the development of this industry and its importance for years of the formation of the provincial economy and its feudal system.

  • The Casa del Obispo Colombres (pre-existing Spanish colonial park construction) is the main building which dominates the whole including work quad. Secondary constructions, the kitchen and the barn, join this production complex. Simple architecture, it has a facade of bi-level constitutes one of its representative characteristics which makes it the oldest suburban high housing of the city. Techniques of the construction materials are used traditionally since colonial times. In the main house dominates the use of bricks both floors, foundations and walls but there are also some areas with adobe. The plasters are made of clay and painting is lime. The floors are wood, as well as the structure of determined with ceramic tiles cover that was originally a flat roof. The Casa Quinta Colombres was built at the beginning of the 19th century in the then outskirts of the city, in the vicinity of the Salí River, which was known as "El Bajo" due to its topographical characteristics. At the beginning of the century XX, this area was occupied by several farms and quintas, which were expropriated by the Provincial Government in order to build a public walk. Today this House Museum is located in the Parque 9 de Julio, inaugurated during the celebrations of the centenary, in 1916. Forestation and ornamentation was performed according to a project of the famous architect and French landscape architect Charles Thays.
