We had read positive things about this museum, in the old pink-colored legislative building. We enjoyed the ministrations of a most congenial and knowledgeable English-speaking guide Victor Ortiz. The museum includes a diverse number of exhibits, from post-colonial artifacts to a remarkable collection on manuscripts...More

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.

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!
