  • The Museum most complete Cologne! All kinds of objects are displayed (war, tableware, clothing, furniture and others) of the era, as well as there are rooms designed for the natural sciences (fossil, stuffed animals, sediments and insects). Elements of the Bullring are exhibited. The payment of the entrance, serves to enter for free to the rest of the museums of Cologne.

  • All those museums in Colonia del Sacramento are quite small but it doesn't mean there are not fun. Enjoy your trip!
  • There are around 5 museums, all very small. Ask for the ticket book to get a discount on entry.
  • The best Colonial Museum Del Sacramento!

Where to stay in Colonia del Sacramento

In contrast to its quaint historical architecture, Colonia del Sacramento offers a range of multi-story, luxury accommodations. Most of these sit near the tip of the city's peninsula, with swimming pools and good beach access. If you want to stay in the old town itself, choose between a range of hostels, inns, and boutique hotels housed in buildings more in keeping with the city's colonial architecture. Make sure to reserve your accommodations in advance, especially if visiting on a weekend or during the busy summer season.
