  • Went a day very hot and it first that decided to do was take refuge us in the cafeteria that provides the place. The service was terrible. We ask lemonade and told us she didn't know if they had because lemons are very expensive, a gaseous tail diet and told us that they were against selling soft drinks but did so at the request of visitors and only had the common. Then, as we were dying of heat we ask if they could turn on the air conditioner and it did so very reluctantly, as if she was doing us a favor. Everything continued as well, people attending instead of ceramic and sale of honey we answered wrong us and other visitors. The bathrooms were dirty. $20 per person by way of bonus "contribution" is charged to visit the two houses and the pioneers Museum, but if you do not exhibís the slip before entering you rajan. We seemed a silly since even had a guide. The people that you received also tended of bad wins except two ladies very friendly that we explained some things in the Museum of them pioneers. We have frequented on other occasions and notice it very careless. All very dirty. In one of the houses had possessions of the staff in the kitchen and is not a good detail for a place that functions as a museum.
