    Montevideo has with a without end of museums fences among themselves, by which, get out and walk to get to know and not go through one of them is a must be. Classic Museum and colonial. Front plaza independence adorns all its sector. I recommend: photos.

    Installed in the former building of the Uruguayan Government, in front of Plaza of independence, the Museum has article of all Presidents of Uruguay. Well documented and even has videos that tell the history of the country.

    The Museum is free and shows about the independence of the country and its past Presidents. It's a beautiful ride worth knowing. To go, have to explain the meaning of the coat of arms of the Country. Very cool! Cannot take pictures.
