Museo y Mercado Provincial de Artesanías

Top choice in Along the Río Paraná

Promoting handicrafts from throughout the province, this is a likable little place that is part museum, part shop. Ask the curator to explain things to you; you’ll be amazed by the intricacy of some of the work, like the hats made from tightly woven palm fibers. Those items available for purchase are identified by a sticker.
