  • The Museum is in front of plaza Mayor finds so it is very easy to find, for authorities entarr to pay a General admission of museums (very economical) that not only allows entering this museum but it also enables entry to other 4 museums. The Museum is a very interesting tour on the history of the city, on the abogines that inhabited the area, the influence of Portuguese and Spanish which the city, the struggle for independence of the Uruguayan people and the prehistoric fauna of the area. A very interesting trip can be carried out with time.

  • 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.
  • This place sells entry only for all the Museum circuit, which is very economical. It is the most complete Museum of the historical circuit of Colonia del Sacramento. Furniture, decoration, historical documents, paintings, scale models. In my opinion, the most outstanding is the collection of zoology and Paleontology that would deserve an own Museum.
