  • Many years ago I had attended the museum and now it was a pleasant surprise to find it in excellent condition and better than before despite the flood that suffered in 2009. It's not much to see, but it's an interesting visit, just like pulpshops. I regret to note a strong ideology in the explanations and comments, offering a controversial version of the history of the Argentine countryside, I suppose in tune with those who have been mayor in these years. It's a shame that spaces that belong to everyone are used to make politics. Other than that, it's worth the visit

  • The building was erected to hold the museum. Up. Valuable family collection. Down. Does not respect all architectural feature of 19th century.
