  • Fine building om the Plaza de Independencia and entrance is free. The history of immigration is well worth the visit. However if you do not understand Spanish you will need to go with a guide.  more »
  • It is a very interesting little Museum, which has preserved parts, but the most interesting part is the part which speaks of migrants and migration that Paraguay, indispensable for understanding the country has received. Its to small and interesting museum to comprehend the history of Paraguay
