For those interested in Montevideo's past, the Museo Historico Nacional is a good place to begin. Located in the Old City, it's made up of old houses where national heroes once dwelt.

The museum's collection traces the history of Uruguay from before its colonisation by Europeans up to the mid-20th century. History buffs will find it interesting.

Address: Rincon (corner) 437, Montevideo
