    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.

    Beautiful building large facade and its interior rooms with typical costumes of native peoples and their ships, as well as objects which recreate the past few centuries.

    The attendance in this museum has exceeded all my expectations. All the staff are very friendly, but it Didia and Gilda on the floor above, on the wing of immigrants, are spectacular. Guided us through the history of immigration in Paraguay and watched a real lesson on the tragic and unjust war in Paraguay. In the end they did still kind enough to present us with a book about the war and indicated other books on the subject. Very good!

Where to stay in Asuncion

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.
