Many atracktion. Historical Place. For Poles: It is worth visiting, many interesting artethings, very well preserved place, great views from the terraces, among other things, the view of the lanterns and grobs of Father Diega or Christopher Columbus. We can see how the people lived and what they had in their rooms . The Synowa Columbus had a potnik in the bedroom, see how. A Place worth visiting with a guide and with audio on the ears.
When I went here the museum was closed, but this building is worth seeing. The old school architecture is really cool to see. The plaza that its in has benches that over look the water and a doc with a view of a really cool bridge. If you're in the area you should make time for this. This is also the building on the back off the 1000 bill.
Really well done and the audio guide is excellent. The staff are so kind and helpful. Really cheerful and cordial. The items are well preserved. I only wish the museum was air conditioned because it is a very humid and sweaty situation.
