  • I am still amazed by the number of museums a small city like Montevideo has to offer. This museum is housed in an old but very beautiful residence. It lacks maintenance, but the government is busy...  more »
  • This museum is interesting, in a very nice building. It is free, like the most of museums in Montevideo. It is nice but not so nice like MNAV (museum of visual arts).  more »
