This is an archeological Museum of top World quality, I believe it was financed by the USA. A must to see in Salta, combine it with a visit to the Cathedral, 50 yards away.

This was a beautiful museum and I'm glad I visited it. Seems small and no pictures allowed, but it opens up inside and is definitely worth the time and money

Great museum, tucked away in plain sight. Very nice exhibit, both in English and Spanish. The story of the mummies is fantastic. There was no crowd, so easy to take your time.

I can't remember. Oops. Not much by European standards. There are different prices for locals and tourists. Locals pay less.
