We decided to come by to see Cesar Pelli's exhibition which was very nice but we ended up staying hours inside because we were marvelled by the other collections. Apparently there is a interactive museum but it was closed. When we were about to leave we got into a never ending path with rooms showing wonderful Buenos Aires pictures and... More

This is supposed to be a "cultural" center, as I understood it.... Did not see any evidence of that when I was there.

As part of the Evita tour we visited her grave in the Cementerio de La Recoleta. It may sound strange but don't miss a visit while in Buenos Aires. We have done a similar tour in Paris but the tombs and mausoleums here are even more elaborate. Evita most well known internationally because of Lloyd Weber musical and movie but... More

Visited with my wife sorry to say that we have to say that we didn't get the whole meaning of the exhibition as it was all in Spanish, did notice a poster stuck behind a door on a wall that listed all the concentration camps that the Germans operated during second world war didn't see the need for it.

I visited this place on a Saturday afternoon. I didn't think much of some of the exhibitions (but of course each of us will have a different tastes) but I did enjoy the Andy Goldestein exhibition which was a series of photographs of families from all over South America in their homes. Some would refer to the exhibition as 'poverty... More

This place is a decent enough addition to touring the cemetery. You can include a visit to the touch science museum, for a fee. Without children, I would suggest just wandering the hallways and different galleries while enjoying the interior architecture of this building. The place is a bit beat up, makes sense as it's in BA - at least... More

We went on a week day to do some shopping and all the handmade stores were closed by mandate of the government who now only allows them to be opened on weekends and holidays - so much for tourist who come during the week. To purchase modern style furniture it is one place a person can go but if you... More
