  • Museo located in the historic centre of Asunción, with interesting pieces in your collection. However, there is a lack of caring for the building itself. The people working at the site have been kind, and always available. Even missing preservation, visit.

  • It tells the story of the Paraguayan colonization with the most varied nationalities. Very good collection. A really good story for understanding.

  • Architecture of the last century used as a bicameral Congress of the Republic and now converted into a Museum of history and art, where with a visit you can visit the last of the Paraguay story, art and its main devotees and enjoy virtual exhibition very well led and accomplished to make very educational visit and is highly recommended for tourists as for nationals. I highly recommend it.

Where to stay in Asuncion

Most of Asuncion's best hotels cluster in the city center, which can be crowded and noisy throughout the day. Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.
