  • Great national museum on an unrecurring theme. There are interactive activities to be able to actively participate in the visit. Well differentiated the different eras and specimens very well preserved. Free retirees and teachers (with teaching license).

  • In a magnificent museum building, the collections are very easy to follow and see, with clear explanations that help you ask questions. I magnify the treasure of La Mercedes, with gold doubloons, among others, of Charles 4: I write it like this because in some it appears numbered as IV and in others as IIII.
