  • This museum has a replica of David in front and does not open every day, see before you go. Is right in the Center and is in the same building that the Viewpoint of the city. A varied Museum, nice and well distributed. There's a lot of interesting antique, from different cultures.

  • First museum. Excellent exhibitions and content. Great in family, because even my 8 year old son loved it, mainly to meet a real Mummy. Schedule at least 3 hours for this tour. Missed ...

  • Well worth a visit. This is full of statues and artwork of ancient Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia and pre-colonial central/south America. It is one of the only places open on a Sunday in the city.
  • A very wide range of art museum. They have a lot of different kind, ages and styles of art. So if you enjoy history of art save a good time for this one.
  • Nice museum. Needs restoration but it is OK. Opens after lunch. You can take the kids
  • The last 11 of August visited the Museum 40 students and 6 adults. The route was beautiful, very well illuminated and explained and preserved. I wish to congratulate all those who are dedicated to maintaining and conserving important documentation of the past to a present and a future. Thank you. Regret not count that day with guide by having their schedules for other groups. Next year I'll be back with other students and will take it into account. College new Helvetia and Rosario.
