  • Very good job restoring the Cabildo. The museum itself is a work of art. Lots of space, very high and much glass. From the hall can one get a sense of that is exposed on each floor. Impeccable.

  • Only to realize a short pass by Tucumán to visit this place. I thought it was very well preserved and presented, depends on what one wants to see but to our taste, it was perfect.
