National History Museum

National History Museum

The Museo Historico Nacional is a good place to begin an exploration of Montevideo for those interested in the city's past. It is housed in a conglomeration of several old houses in the Old City, all once dwelt in by national heroes. The main section, for example, topped by a distinctive octagonal cupola, was once the home of Fructuoso Rivera, the country's first president. The museum's collection traces the history of Uruguay from before its colonisation by Europeans up to the mid-20th century.

Address: Corner of Rincon and Misiones Avenue in the Old City
Admission: Free
