  • This museum is a perfect place to give you an idea of what the life was in the Pampa during the XIX century. You can visit a "Pulperia" ( General store/ bar) and an "Estancia": house of land owners...  more »
  • The building was erected to hold the museum. Up. Valuable family collection. Down. Does not respect all architectural feature of 19th century.
  • A museum run by the Municipality, well worth a visit .
