Colonia’s municipal museum is the oldest in the town. It showcases historical items from different periods of Colonia's history including a palaeontology section. The building dates back to 1795.

I wouldn't bother crossing the road to see this one again. Small with not much information and very little to see. The proper English descriptive word would be 'pants!'
