  • Palace belonged to two large families of Patagonian terratenenti; view fastuossi furniture and objects used in the era of colonization. A little poor for those accustomed to European museums.

  • It displays the actual life style of the era, everything well maintained. The captions are in both Spanish and English, very clear. During my visit, (2 hrs) there was a girl playing piano in the patio, how lovely! I learn so much history of this region. Totally worth a good long afternoon to spend here.
  • Pretty nice and a large exhibit for a free museum. Definitely worth a look while in town! Great displays on period furniture and rooms.
