  • We thought this was a museum, but it is more the heart of the Carnival here. Organization has their Office. There is a small room where dmv video the genesis of the Carnival here. Wonderful how it here is still alive.

  • The architecture is beautiful, but there is nothing to do apart from a single interactive room which is very cute, inside you can buy crafts
