  • Nice place, where you can know how people lived years ago. But you take not more than 30min to view it all...  more »
  • The truth is that as a Museum doesn't offer much, only some objects used by the families who lived on the island. At the end you can participate in a dance class and take some refreshment.

  • During the City Tour we stopped at Casa Museo where you can see the furniture and the lifestyle of the colonizers and first inhabitants. It's a tour, it's not time consuming. The tab (I don't remember the name) very happy, expansive, is a show the part describing the history, habits and customs and at the end there's a surprise ... I won't tell you not to spoil the surprise. Worth a visit for those who like to know the history of the place.
