  • Former residence of the family of Sara Braun, is very beautiful, with period furniture, access to the basement and a small outdoor patio. Free ticket.

  • Known as the Museo Regional de Magallanes, it is worth spending time to explore. It is far more complete and furnished than the Sara Braun mansion which is just around the corner.  more »

  • It's pretty and original, lot of information provided. But nothing to special. Good to spend a lazy afternoon because it's for free as well
  • Excellent museum! Lovely and beautiful. It keeps its original furniture and other things.
  • Un.muy is good, very complete Museum, which recounts the glorious past of the business family Braun Menéndez. It is a mansion, which keeps their styles, with original furniture, and several related exhibitions. Fabric slippers, should be used to prevent damage to the wood floor. missed the underground, which contains rooms of the servants, a gigantic kitchen and boilers. It is like entering an episode of Downton Abbey. And the price is ridiculous ($3,000). To all of my liking.

  • A very neat sample. The building is awesome! The attention was regular. They were angry because we arrived fifteen minutes before closing and made us feel.
