  • It's a simple Museum, but has a lot of information about the history of the Uruguayan Government as well as the names, pictures and features of Presidents. How is free, it is worth visiting.

  • Even worth going to, but I found it a little bland. Maybe I was unmotivated. The exhibits refer to generals, their deeds, objects, etc. Very attached to militarism.

  • Nice museum of the presidents of Uruguay. Unguided tour. Get the English brochure.
  • Wonderful museum and nice building.
  • Beautiful place to visit
  • Good !
  • Great place to learn about the history and culture of our brave Orientals who gave their lives for our Uruguayan land. It is a museum to go with time and peace of mind to appreciate the details of everything that is displayed in windows. Is not a place to go with such young children... the idea of visiting this place is already going with previous knowledge as well in order to understand a little everything there is. Therefore children from 6 or 7 years this well that visit it. In the Museum is not permitted to take pictures with flash because of the delicacy of the exposed materials... I recommend the place.
