Museo Histórico Provincial


The well-presented collection features plenty of post-independence exhibits plus excellent displays on indigenous cultures from many parts of Latin America. Particularly interesting is the collection of baroque religious art from the southern Andes. Information is in Spanish only. It's closed when Newell's Old Boys are playing at home in the adjacent stadium.
