  • difficult to access, is on a street in the Center, if not go specifically to the Museum or notes that there is an only floor has some exhibits but not surprising much no is the best choice

  • When I visited, I was in and I couldn't see the whole collection. The part which had access was small and there was little information about the pieces.

  • Valley, and make a visit to the historical Institute, for there you will have a deeper understanding of the history of the city and the State.
