we got there only an hour before it closed, but were still able to see most of everything that interested us. This building was once a private home and one can only marvel at what it must have been like to live there. We truly enjoyed our quick look

This is one of the best museums in Buenos Aires. The rooms are just breathtaking. We forget that Argentina was once a famously rich country (a bit like UK) and this museum shows what it was like to be one of those sumptuously rich families. I would visit this museum on every trip to Buenos Aires. It's inspiring.

This museum has a good location to walk to, for access, and a nice little restaurant in the grounds. Appreciate the hours open and English descriptions. This captures the outrageous wealth of some of it citizens. The architecture is very unusual with some fine paintings too. The place is not huge so you are exhausted after. Highly recommend it.

A wonderful museum to visit with beautiful and original furniture and art. Also had a delightful lunch at the restaurant, Croque Madame. The museum is relatively small and there were English explanations in each of the rooms. Lovely way to spend an afternoon.

The museum had a beautiful interior but it was rather small and with little information. It being in the top 10 attractions in BA seems like a joke considering what else this city has to offer. Unless you are an Art Déco fanatic you might as well skip this museum. The best thing in the museum was actually the temporary... More

We had intended to see the Museo de Bellas Artes that day but it was closed for renovations. Went to De Arte Decorativo as a second plan. Disappointed. There were many beautiful, individual items but the whole was jammed together without theme. I do not read Spanish and most everything was in Spanish only so it was difficult for me.
