This building, in exquisite french style, was built in the early years of the twentieth century by the Errazuriz family. Now, it had become a museum. You can feel the scent of old times when you enter, imagining wonderful dinner parties and dances.....

We went to lunch in this neighborhood and decided to check out this museum. It is very worthwhile if you are nearby, but not sure if I would make a special trip. It is an old mansion with much of the original art work and furniture. If you are interested in how the 1% lived during the hey day of... More

Museum opens Tue to Sun, 14:00 -19:00, 15$, free on Tue. The mansion is an impressive building and the spanish/english explanations in every room were interesting. I enjoyed the afternoon there and had a nice break at the coffe shop , where you can sit outside under shady trees

Do not let the decorative art museum moniker detract you from visiting. This is one of the few former palaces occupied by Buenos Aires elite society that is regularly open to the public. We happened to go on the day admission was free but the house is beautiful and grandiose and would be worth the admission price.

If you are even remotely interested in seeing how the Argentine aristocracy lived, then this is worth a visit. What's special is just how complete and intact all the furniture, artwork, etc. is, so it gives you a good insight as to how they lived many decades ago. Beautiful, museum quality art in a natural setting. Loved it! Wished I... More

The museum gives a first-class glimpse upon the life style of Buenos Aires richest families a century ago, when this Country was one of the world's richest.

The building itself is worth seeing. It is filled with treasures amassed by a wealthy Spanish family from all parts of the world.

This Museum has a contempt for the visiting public. It can not be bothered to post its closed days on its website or even on its door. It advertised itself as being open, and only after the official opening time posted a paper notice which said it was closed for the day. This is a symptom of an organisation which... More

The collection is beautiful, but what is most interesting is the building, owned, in its day by the Alvear-Errázuriz family. There is a copy of Rodin's La porte de l'enfer in the main hall.
