I can't believe how great this museum was and all for FREE!

The displays are very well done and the content is very interesting and informative.
They even give you a free device which gives you information about each part in either English, Spanish or German.

Staff members were very friendly and welcoming.

Toilets are very clean too.

The museum is inside the Centro Ambiental compound so look for the entrance with this name on it.

Highly recommended!

This museum is part of a larger installation that includes research facilities and a local wildlife zoo. I guess that's why they want to see your documentation at the entrance. If your interest in visiting the museum is to see artifacts, forget it. The exhibit consists of a long timeline, with documentary photographs, covering the history of Paraguay. The early parts cover all of the pre-Colombian settlements going back thousands of years, not just the Guaraní, describing their methods of subsistence, their tools, their conjectured origins, etc. There are some posters that cover native culture, language, etc. The timeline moves on to the arrival of the Europeans and their impact on the natives. Eventually, though, we get to the nineteenth and then twentieth centuries, and the timeline proceeds to speak of all the intrigues and conflicts and alliances among the Europeans and their descendants, all the way through independence and Stroessner and democracy thereafter--with no further discussion at all of the Guaraní after a certain point. So I don't know why they don't just call it the Paraguay History Museum. The Guaraní are covered, but they aren't consistently the focus.

The history is given in three languages, Spanish, Portuguese, and English. The English is OK, but less than completely adept, and there's some laughable or even inexplicable phrasing.

On the other hand, the museum is very close to the dam, the history is informative as long as you aren't misled by the name of the museum, and if you want to go to the zoo as well or otherwise have time to kill, it couldn't hurt to stop here. I ran through it all in 45 minutes.
