  • The best of the Museum is its triple staircase helicoidadl, in which you raise by sections, similar to a movie of harry potter where the escaler changes direction, here you raise a stretch and not just half, up another section you have to get off and catch another stair Apart from this staircase that only if it is worth the visit, is a museum full of culture and Galician traditions, recommended, but if we had to put a but, the posters only parts expoitores are written in Galician.

  • Museum suitable for educational activities, to discover the history and culture of the place. A quick visit to see the birth and ok to history of Santiago. The curiosity is satisfied from the staircase that is the centerpiece of the Museum.
