  • Located in Plaza Independencia, the Museo Casa de Gobierno tells the story of the country and their Chairmen. The visit is free, just can't take pictures inside the Museum.

  • On the second floor of the State House portraits, sculptures, busts, clothing of different eras, are ancient coins. Photos can not be removed. It took me like 20-30 min to go through it. To the enter there are lockers to leave backpacks and are must leave an identification while is runs.
