  • The Museum casa de Gobierno is interesting to visit because it tells the story of Uruguay policy. The building is beautiful.

  • Very nice ride, where you know the history of all Presidents of Uruguay. Advantage that access to the Museum is free, but is not allowed to shoot and not shoot your interior.

  • The building is located in Plaza Independencia and dating from the 19th century, having been built to house the Estévez family, so it was called the "Palacio Estévez". Has been the seat of the Government of Uruguay and so, since 1999 works there the "Museo de la Casa de Gobierno", which was closed when I went, in the last days of 2016. The Museum is free and you can't shoot anything inside, even without the flash.
