  • It is interesting but I thought it was more big. Either way don't forget to visit it even if it is just a room. Explanation of how these tiles are made is interesting

  • the truth is not very impressive, if you really like the story, then things change. If you go for 2 days and you can not visit this Museum, you lose for nothing.

  • 18TH century Portuguese construction, ceiling with two waters and tiles and original walls. The Museum shows a small collection of French and Spanish tiles used in the region of the Río de la Plata. The House is too small and has two rooms.

  • Museo del Azulejo. Amazing 17th Century building.If you are interested in the materials used in this town’s amazing building, then this museum might be more meaningful for that rather than what’s housed inside. This stone house is still standing after centuries. Built in the last of 17th century.However, inside there is a small display of beautifully designed tiles displayed on boards but with little or no explanation. Even though we knew some of the tiles were the oldest in Uruguay we were less than impressed. In and out in under 10 minutes. ***
  • Interessante porém pequena. Vale a visita histórica, mas é uma passadinha...
  • The Museum is small, the construction can be seen. The entry goes $50/USD2. Does not carry more than 30 min see it. It closed in the early afternoon.

  • A beauty! To lose hours with everything there is to see and discover. Full of history and magic to be fascinated with the work of those times when everything was "a lung". Places more musts in Cologne.
