  • The Museum has a large collection on the history of Paraguay. The acquis is excellent and the Museum inside is beautiful. However, don't go, or get out on foot at all. Has a settlement in front and the driver warned us that it is very dangerous (he was very emphatic). As we were with hotel shuttle, agreed with the driver to let us and pick us up 1 hour later.

  • In addition to the Casa de la Independencia, the Manzana de la Rivera, the waterfront and some points more, constitute a good city tour for noon in Asunción

  • It costs us$ 0.50 to visit this small museum in old wagon and a very old locomotove. Certain objects are also to be discovered. The building is worth to be seen.
