Organized, informative, and interesting
Jan 2020
On July 26, 2002, on the 50th anniversary of the death of Argentina's First Lady, Eva "Evita" Perón, her grandniece, Cristina Alvarez Rodriguez, opened the Evita Museum in Buenos Aires.

The museum building was originally a mansion built in 1923 that the Fundación Eva Perón bought in 1948 to use as a shelter for single women with children. She named the home "Hogar de Tránsito (Temporary Home)". In 1999, the building was declared a National Historical Monument.

Visitors pay $7, receive an audioguide, and are required to follow the one-way circuit through the rooms. The displays are primarily in chronological order, and following the set route keeps visitor traffic flowing through the small rooms and narrow doorways. It takes just over an hour to tour this museum, take pictures, read displays, and watch short video clips.

The museum's collection of videos, posters, photographs, signs, portraits, documents, displays, and memorabilia (including Eva's stylish wardrobe - dresses, shoes, purses, hats) help highlight Eva Peron's accomplishments during various stages of her life. Most information is written in both Spanish and English.

Eva Peron was a champion of the people and a social justice advocate. Her impoverished background fueled her drive to establish better conditions for the poor and working classes of Argentina. As First Lady of Argentina, Eva Peron took on unprecedented responsibilities with regards to Civil Rights issues and the establishment of accessible resources and necessary services for all, drastically changing the role of women in power despite the vehement disapproval of the Argentine aristocracy.

Evita founded the Peronista Feminist Party, and was a powerful voice in the Women's Suffrage Movement in Argentina, advocating for women's rights and place in politics. She saw her efforts come to fruition in 1951 when women won the right to vote. She worked closely with Perón and Congress to support women, children, seniors, workers, and the poor of Argentina.

She helped create equitable and accessible health care, a minimum wage, paid vacations, and pensions for workers. She established a contribution foundation and tax system that provided funds to build schools, hospitals, shelters, senior villages, children's sports programs, job training programs, nursing programs, immunization programs, and provide food, clothing, cooking utensils, and basic items to those in need.

A newsreel clip shows her famous speech to the Descamisados from the balcony of La Casa Rosada; in another, a line of three million grief-stricken mourners, waiting 15 hours to file past her glass casket in the Congreso in order to pay their respects to Santa Evita.

I recommend first visiting the Museo Evita to understand who this galvanizing historical figure was before visiting the Casa Rosada (only open on Saturdays by online appointment), the Congreso (drop by weekdays 12:30pm or 5pm), or the Recoleta Cemetery where she was eventually laid to rest in the Duarte family tomb. These sites mention Eva Peron only briefly, so having more knowledge of her background before you tour will help you appreciate her contributions when you visit those other important sites.

Hope that helps! Enjoy Buenos Aires.

We purchased tickets on March 12th at 5 pm for the 13th. On the 12th at noon, Buenos Aires closed all museums due to the virus, but Trip Advisor continued selling tIckets. I immediately contacted TA regarding a refund, but have not heard back.

Fabulous museum and what a story!
Feb 2020
This is such a fabulous museum.

The building is fabulous in itself, and this coupled with the story of Eva Peron is a winning mix. The story is told really well through clothes, film, artefacts and documents.

It’s not too big and the better for it, as the curator has earned their money just by picking the best of the best to tell the story of this wonderful woman and her tragic death at such a young age.

Lovely cafe & shop too.

We went today and enjoyed it and their garden restaurant for lunch. Bring headphones as the tour is an app. Much of the signage and videos were in English. I haven’t seen the movie so the museum was an enlightening education for me.
Cafe was pleasant and food good.
I would recommend taking the time in BA to see it

We had a private guided tour for our group through this wonderful small museum. I learned much about Evita Peron’s early life and her rise to fame as the wife of Argentina’s Leader.

Great museum
Jan 2020
I visited this museum in January 2920 and Contrary to the tripadvisor heading, the Entrance fee was only 330 peso per person and you are able to use your mobile to log in to the free museum WiFi to get the free audio guide app.

As I am interested in this era in history, I found this museum very interesting. There are a few rooms where videos are streamed on a constant loop both in Spanish and English. You will need about 60-90 minutes to do this museum justice.

Worth a visit
Jan 2020
When visiting BA, learning the life of Eva/Evita Peron is a must. This museum tells her life story with dresses and pictures and short films, all set in a transient house she founded for women to get back on their feet. The audio tour was a bit of a bust- it a website with occasional audio commentary that worked poorly. By the third room of the house, most people had given up on it. That said, the building has real history and the dresses in particular were authentic. Worth a visit. Budget 60-75 minutes to get through it.
