I thought it was fitting to visit the Carnival Museum in Montevideo since the primary purpose of my visit was to attend Carnival. The museum is small with only 2 large rooms but consists of a variety of costumes and masks used in past carnival festivals. There is some history behind the traditions and it definitely helps give some inside into the culture behind the event.

El Museo del Carnaval, ubicado frente al puerto en la Ciudad Vieja, rescata y documenta todo los objetos, valores y tradiciones del carnaval de Montevideo. Las colecciones permanentes incluyen la de los tambores del candombe, una forma musical derivada de los ritmos y danzas traídos por los esclavos africano; la historia del carnaval en Uruguay y los viejos tablados, o coloridos escenarios decorados para los festejos. El museo también organiza talleres educativos y espectáculos musicales.
