  • 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.

  • Unfortunately, due to a storm that damaged the original location of this attraction, she is in a place means improvised. The statues are beautiful and worth a visit. I hope soon to be relocated to a bigger location and with a structure worthy of the works.

  • Due to the tornado that had in April 2016 the Museum is closed. With that I couldn't see the Bell and other important objects from the ruins.
