It is interesting to see what has been found in our costs... Curiosities and nice memories from historical info from main spots in Uruguay. It is not perfectly organised still nice to see.

The museum was recommended by the owner of the Posada we stayed at.
It was a rainy day so we thought Why not? It turned out to be a very interesting option. Museo del mar is fun for all ages. You can follow the history of Punta del Este and find interesting facts about its sea life. Also, there is an exhibition of objects from the early XX century.
Loved it!

It started as a private single effort and as a private collection. It became a very good place for going with family to learn and know more about sea life.
