A small and quiet museum a sort walk from the central square. Interesting object but very little information in english. Free entrance but they appreciate donations.

Charming spot, walking distance from San Antonio centre. Plenty of information about Gaucho culture and life 60 - 100 years ago in the Argentine countryside including a recreated 'pulperia'.

Very definitely worth a visit. An introduction to Gaucho culture. I spent over an hour there and learned an awful lot.

This place is the attraction for day trippers from BA and its very beautiful and peaceful - but virtually dead quiet. There are existing farmers and horses in adjoining fields - they would improve the experience as would some kind of display. There really aren't...More

A great way to spend a morning, interesting Farm implements, buildings, and museum. Lots of insight into the gaucho culture and argentine authors who lived it

Diverse museum with multiple buildings with a good history of the gaucho culture from the region. Many great authentic pieces from the region. The museum is free and open from 1000-1700.
