Juan Perón Family Museum. Surprisingly good museum with lots of English translations. Free entry.
Nov 2017 • Couples
Why surprising? Because this is a very small town that does not receive many visitors. We were only there because our cruise ship stopped here to take passengers to the penguin colony about 30 kilometres south of here and we were waiting for the first group of buses to return. In addition, this is a fairly modern, well maintained, museum which was only opened in 2008. The facilities are also very good.

The museum is built as a replica of Juan Peron’s family home when his parents moved the family from Buenos Aires to Camarones in 1901. At the time Juan Perón was 6 and he was subsequently sent away to boarding school in Buenos Aires when he was 10 and entered military college when he was 16. It appears though that he returned regularly to the family home during holidays and breaks.

The museum contains a large number of furniture items, photos, momentoes, documents, posters and other objects depicting the family’s life and Juan Peron’s rise to power. There is very little in this museum devoted to Evita.

There are a surprising number of English translations. Unfortunately though the staff spoke no English.

Worth a visit if in Camarones.
