  • Very nice, in addition to being a free program, full of memories of the past, such as antique furniture, clothing of the outlaws and description very well made of exposed objects. It is certainly a throwback of the region, being too small, but well worth the visit.

  • Is closed for reform already has a good time, another attraction in the city that does not work, the city has left something to be desired.

  • I went before the reform ... the collection is very summarized. Has a wing only with pictures of former mayors ... but the rest are decoration pieces and a few parts. Hope now has improved after retirement.
