This is a beautiful building still in good repair unlike many of the other buildings downtown. Worth visiting, and good view of the river from there.

This small museum is unfortunately located in the Plaza Armas/Plaza Indepencia area and thus forms part of the vast refugee/homeless encampment that now dominates Asuncion. There are armed soldiers and police everywhere, which is designed correctly to put you off visiting. However, if you can...More

Fine building om the Plaza de Independencia and entrance is free. The history of immigration is well worth the visit. However if you do not understand Spanish you will need to go with a guide.

This is a great museum inside the Cabildo. There is a section on traditional Indian handicrafts along with some really good artworks. When I went there were some photographs being exhibited I think about a revolution in Uruguay. Upstairs on the first floor there is...More

The price of entry is free and you can spend a little over an hour here. On the top floor is a legislative room that is open to the public to see the visit, cool to see.

This is a place with so great potencial, it has been congress building for many years, and the staircase is a must see... temporary exhibitions are nice, but this place is so great that it needs to be taken care so much more!

After visiting the Museo del Barro, the Museo del Cabildo was a little disappointing. There were small displays of indigenous artifacts and religious art as well as political and Paraguayan movie artifacts. The former senate chamber was interesting and there was a special exhibit of...More
