Museo Regional Y Jará - Museum Esteros Del Iberá - Argentina

A half-block from the pastoral Plaza San Martín is Museo Regional y Jará, whose name in Guaraní means “spirit protector of the water.” This simple museum has four rooms. The first explains the Esteros del Iberá environments, flora and fauna. The next teaches Guaraní culture. In the next, the topics are mariscador life and the founding of Colonia Carlos Pellegrini. The last room gives insight on the region’s myths and legends. Out front are pieces of the old ferry boat.
