  • For me it was the best Museum I visited in the city. A real history lesson about the city and the region. The building is local historio and full of ghost stories. Is a great option for a ride!

  • A stately building steeped in history, in front of a wall that had the purpose to protect the city in the time of colonization that. a city of strong sunshine and blue skies, many tourists and a place with air conditioning provides Besides learning a sodas for the heat.

  • Yes, the Museum has a good collection of that show. Yes, it's all very (very) well explained about each piece. But I got a feeling of tiredness in the midst of so much information-it seems like the place is small for so much (and definitely not). Interesting they close the tour with a history of ghosts that haunt those old walls.
