  • Spectacular training ride. Pablo de el Puerto guide there are no words. We went three times and their contributions are spectacular. The energy that puts in its history is impressive. Divine Museum technology. We were very grateful.

  • Sunday 15 there was a sheet of notebook that said closed due to technical problems. Lack of respect to citizenship without warning. A pity because it must be one of the best sites and museums of the Uruguay. To see if there are batteries, so there are people who want to make tourism.

  • On my first visit (year 2013) to this historic place found me fascinating, there were mannequins representing the toll workers and travelers with their errands, any child could understand some of the actions that is made at that time, the Museum had so many weapons, clothes, tools, etc, was an entertaining ride trying to understand how they used certain things. 2017 returned to visit the old toll but I had warned that it had remodeled, also I went with enthusiasm because it is a beautiful place, but what I found there was no or similar to the old Museum, to start many of the spaces before longer is could visit already not is could enter, the places that is could access is reduced to 60% bone there is almost nothing to go the antiques that formerly covered the walls changed them by monitors and useless projectors or want dan to hear what historians have in videos, the audio is impossible but impossible to hear, believe that there happened the famous maldicon of malinche, but nationally, speaking of the country, were to Exchange gold for glass. It is painful to see that they took everything.
