Museo Miguel Lillo De Ciencias Naturales

Reviewed By Betty P - San Miguel de Tucuman, Argentina

El Museo de Ciencias Naturales Miguel Lillo es un tesoro escondido. Y esto es casi literal ya que el museo se encuentra adentro del edificio de la Facultad de Ciencias Naturales. Es un lugar increíble! Cuenta con exposiciones de Botánica, Zoología y Geología.
El museo está organizado en varias salas y tiene muestras permanentes y temporarias.
Dentro del sitio donde se encuentra emplazado el museo, también se puede visitar el solar donde nació Miguel Lillo y además su tumba! Hay otras rarezas, como un árbol cuyo tronco impide el paso por su gran tamaño.
Es un lugar adecuado para visitas con niños.
No se permite tomar fotografías.
En la página web del museo se pueden consultar los horarios y días en que está abierto como así también el precio de la entrada, que es muy económico.

Reviewed By Ramiro E - La Plata, Argentina

Hermosa Basílica, ubicada en pleno centro de la ciudad de Tucumán, sobre la 24 de septiembre. Se destaca principalmente la imagen de la Virgen de la Merced con el bastón de mando de Belgrano. Cuidada y bien mantenida, merece ser visitada.

Casa Historica de Tucuman

Reviewed By JMGeneva - Geneva, Switzerland

It never hurts to learn a little about history and that's exactly what you can get during a short visit at this museum. The creation of Argentina is well presented in the exact place where it happened. Texts are in Spanish only but quite understandable with a basic command and the building itself is very nice. Not a must but pleasant nevertheless.

Parque Sierra de San Javier

Reviewed By Aimee T - Melbourne, Australia

The drive up and surrounding areas are just breathtaking. A great chance to really unwind and enjoy the scenery. The museum underneath the statue has English information with the exhibits. As you go around the area there are many stalls that you can buy unique souvenirs from - which was a highlight for us.

Museo de la Industria Azucarera

Reviewed By Gene J - Silver Spring, Maryland

We walked 2 km northeast from our Hotel Metropol to this free museum surrounded by a steam locomotive, 2 cylinder steam engine with huge flywheel, and various field equipment.
The Spanish speaking attendant instructed our self tour beginning in the 2 room out building. The first room had a movie displaying the timeline of this industry and the second had a huge ox drawn sugarcane cart, boiling vats, and crushing equipment. Next door was the 1820’s “José Eusebio Colombres” home with furnishings, photographs, and a movie of the sugarcane harvesting and factory advances to process sugar. This man is credited with planting the cane on this farm in 1821 (brought originally by the early Jesuits), having the first mill, thus beginning this provinces profitable industry.
Although all information is in Spanish, we felt our visit was most helpful in understanding the historical development of the Argentine sugarcane industry.
