Museos Del Gaucho Y De La Moneda - Museum Montevideo - Uruguay

Models of horses, gaucho costumes and rifles make the Museo del Gaucho a popular stop for families, though perhaps keep the smallest ones away from the very threatening-looking boleadores (a weapon of three balls tied to leather cords). Downstairs, the Museo de la Moneda exhibits Uruguayan and worldwide coins, from the earliest pesos to the present day. In a building designed by French architect Alfred Massüe, this is a good place to spend an hour picking out your favorite silver mate cup.
