  • This is a nice place to visit when you have time. It seems that the museum and everything is connected in one place. You can see anthropological things, art, and cool artifacts. You can also see interesting antiques. The best thing is that it is free.
  • This newly opened national Museum of Cultural is very well organized and laid out a real pleasure to visit. It takes you through pre Columbus to colonial and into modern but in history and art. It is beautiful organized with objects display as art vs archeology.
