On 735 Jean Jaures Street, a quiet road two blocks away from the Abasto Shopping Mall. For those who are not Latin American, a brief note: In the city of Buenos Aires, Abasto used to be a poor area, devoted to the central wholesale of fruit and vegetable market (from 1893 to 1984). Since 1999, the area has been completely... More

El Museo Casa Carlos Gardel is a small house located near Abasto shopping center. You can find it easily. I was not expecting anything that would blow my mind and that is exactly what I found. However, it is a must see for latin american people and I guess for some europeans too. If you are American or Canadian you... More

The man who put tango on the map has a free museum in a home where he lived some 75 years ago. The neighborhood has homes with interesting architecture and a carnival like style. well worth a hour of your time when visiting the Pink House

Specifically went on Saturday just before 4pm so that we could enjoy the museum and enjoy the tango lessons given by Patricia y Cacho. He told us he is 80 and has been dancing since he was 5. The house actually belonged to Carlos Gardel - easy to get to via the subte of the same name. He was the... More

This museum is small, nothing fancy, but a delightful way to spend an hour and to experience an essential aspect of Argentine history. It is impossible to think of Argentina without tango coming to mind immediately. This is thanks to the enchanting charisma of Charles Gardel. It was fascinating to learn where tango found its origin and about Gardel's larger-than-life... More

This little house is out of the way but easy to get to taking the subte, and definitely worthwhile to visit. It's kind of small but it gives you a good feeling about this great tango legend in Argentina. For tango lovers this is a must! It gives you the history how tango was and how it changed with Carlos... More

I enjoyed my visit here. To visit Buenos Aires and not take something away about Gardel would be a shame; he and the legacy of tango are so central to the history of the city. The museum is a bit off the beaten path. I walked from the city center (~30min) but most take the Subte and stop at the... More
