The building, formally a private home, is absolutely stunning and the collection is over the top, ornate, and beautiful. However, there are plenty of places in Buenos Aires that you can see the splendor of the Porteño upper classes. For me, there are other more interesting and exciting museums to check out if you are only in town for a... More

We had a lovely lunch at the restaurant next to the turtle pond. When taking a taxi they drop you right at the gate. The wait staff were prompt and helpful. I could have spent the afternoon there but had too much more to see.

This fantastic Palace -once a family property of Errázuriz - Alvear shows its permament Oriental collection and other exhibits all year long. You can also have a coffee or even dinner at a beautiful restaurant in the Museum

Beautiful furnishings, a great collection of miniature paintings and a nice cafe to sit and enjoy a tea after a long day of walking around Recoletta. This Muz takes little time to visit and is very close to Belle Artes Muz

We stopped at the museo yesterday, Tuesday March 17th...... Tuesday admission just happens to be free. I can't count the times over the years that we've enjoyed this "palace" and everything in it. The permanent exhibits have NOT changed. And I will not add to the raves and repeat what everyone has said. There are always changing exhibits on the... More

This is wonderful house turned into a museum of decorative arts. The family collection forms the base, and donors have continued to build. Rather eclectic yet charming. Have a coffee on the grounds.

The grand hall is one of those rooms you dream about with a minstrels gallery on three sides and an enormous fireplace on the fourth. There was a pair of Chi'en Lung vases that I particularly liked.

Pleased we took the time to visit this museum. Gives a good idea how life was in a "palacio" in this era. Some interesting styles, art and sculptures.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
