  • Very interesting to see the works built many, many years ago. Creative staff and artist use the few resources at the time to do those arts.

  • The real Museum was closed for restoration, because she suffered severe damage after the passage of a tornado a few months ago. A small collection is moved to the other side of the street, and that's where you can find some pieces that remained. Are images in beautiful life-size wood and you can get an idea of what should be the full acquis.

  • Of great interest also of artistic, ethnological gives testimony to the high degree of talent and sensitivity of Guaraní origin. Installed in Spanish colonial style building, clear, succinct explanations and brings about the exhibits. To clarify and eliminate prejudicial ideas about the extraordinary people that has produced, as well as to enhance the value of the missionaries that with such people lived and interacted, revealing its remarkable potential.
