  • The Museum is in a well-preserved building and has a lot of material but I found it very messy, they do not indicate you anywhere to start. Some of the posters with the explanation were too far away to read. When asking how to see the San Francisco Ruins we were told that with a guide alone you can not show everything so we are left without seeing them (only from behind bars) If you want to understand something please book guided tour

  • Excellent place where you can see the ruins of what gave rise to the city of Mendoza. A lot of story to record in the mind and the retinas.

  • A wonderful journey through Mendoza's history. Some information in English would have been helpful, as would some central seating for those wishing to pause and reflect.
  • It's nice to visit, just know that there are no explanations in English.
