Interesting collections tracing three periods of Salta's history. The indigenous peoples, the Spanish period and the fight for independence are housed in a historical building, displayed well. No English translations except for a short film in the first room, but the exhibits speak for themselves.

The museum is housed in a nice building. There are a lot of artefacts however very few English signs, so I don't feel that I got as much out of it as I could have. If you have time to spare, it's a fine place to visit, but it's not an issue if you miss it.

Very rude security here, chastised us heavily for taking some photos. There is not much to see here anyway. Judging by previous photos showing pot plants and gardens, it seems they have let the place run down. Perhaps that is why they don’t want you to take photos… lol. The entry fee was 15 pesos.

It took us about five minutes to visit this museum located in a nice, old building. Did we miss anything?
