“Small museum of limited interest”
This 1810 adobe house, containing furniture and costumes of the period, was the home of the Uriburu family, which produced two of Argentina's presidents.

Free of charge, donations encouraged. Given its historic perspective of a family that produced 2 presidents, worth our while. Enjoyed a 30 minute stroll.

There are several museums in Salta that really arent museums but houses donated to the community or once lived in by local colourful characters: very limited content of a completely arbitrary nature of very limited interest

Interesting collections tracing three periods of Salta's history. The indigenous peoples, the Spanish period and the fight for independence are housed in a historical building, displayed well. No English translations except for a short film in the first room, but the exhibits speak for themselves.

The museum is housed in a nice building. There are a lot of artefacts however very few English signs, so I don't feel that I got as much out of it as I could have. If you have time to spare, it's a fine place...More

Very rude security here, chastised us heavily for taking some photos. There is not much to see here anyway. Judging by previous photos showing pot plants and gardens, it seems they have let the place run down. Perhaps that is why they don’t want you...More

It took us about five minutes to visit this museum located in a nice, old building. Did we miss anything?
