  • Beautiful museum that helps to understand the creation of the Villa. Discovers the vision of its creator and the advancement in construction.

  • It is located in the first House that Carlos Gesell in Argentina built when it was just a barren wasteland of wind and sand. This fact is well documented. Only by the place that surrounds the Museum a visit worth.

  • Important information about the origin of Villa Gesell. Part of the Argentina story about immigrants and visionaries. It fills me with pride. God wants to continue keeping this place. The forest is fantastic!. Recommendation: Choose the guided tour.

  • Good review of the origin of Villa Gesell, by the hand of Carlos Gesell. Due to the weather, and it's short visit, would have been good to allow Guide at the moment, and not only in 2 hours. But very cute!
