    is a museum as its name indicates, art history has sculptures of the prehistory and many of the Hellenistic period. I thought it was very beautiful, well worth a visit ... When I went to the entrance was free.

    Well organized, it is in the basement of the City Council of Montevideo, you can visit at a time. The children are impressed by the Egyptian Mummy and sometimes itinerant exhibitions of art and/or handicrafts from interesting cultures of the region (Latin America) can be enjoyed. It has greatly improved in recent years.

    Excellent replicas, and the best in the world. A museum story of very good level. You must traverse it every now and then.

    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.

    If you are an art lover, you are going to enjoy savouring the exhibition. Even if you are not highly interested in art, you still can broaden your views.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
