    This is not a museum as we know it
    I called to see if this was open, as most museums in Buenos Aires are closed on Monday. A gentleman answered the phone, spoke English, and told me where the "museum" was. When I showed the address to the taxi driver, he chuckled. When I arrived at Rojas 129, I thought there was a mistake. Beware! This is not a museum as we think of museums. It is a small storefront overflowing with odds and ends, halloween masks, glass objects, photocopy machines, and some memorabilia of Che. The founder of the so-called "primer Museo historico sudamericano" (first south American museum) is a charming man named Eladio Gonzalez. He has a lot of stories to tell about Che, why there is no museum to Che in Rosario, Santa Fe (his birthplace), and lots of photos and letter he shares. I was surprised to see that I spent 90 minutes with him. He is quite knowledgeable and his story of going to Cuba and meeting a wounded police man's family are touching. especially, when the story became embellished. All in all, a nice break from typical museums. He also invited me to watch his son teach tango and sent me to a city-owned sculpture museum that was closed on Mondays. All in all, if you like "off the beaten path" places, this could be for you.

    Quirky museum
    Not a museum in a conventional sense. More an enthusiast’s display of bits and pieces. Toto ( proprietor) gave us all his attention and showed us numerous photos of Che and his comrades. Toto told us many stories and much information about Che, Argentina and about Cuba. We really enjoyed our odd experience at the only museum in Argentina dedicated to Ernesto “Che” Guevara.

    Fomos ao museu de Che e chegamos lá, uma loja de antiguidades, com um acervo sobre o Che, um senhor simpático, esse senhor , dono do Museu , conhecido como Toto, nos deu uma aula enriquecedora de história, contando tudo sobre Che e Granado, sobre a vida e mundo. Uma experiência incrível. Viva Lá Revolucion! Tânia e Rafael

This is not a museum, it's an old shop with a couple of posters and photos of Che Guevara. The old couple that own the store is nice but I felt insulted when i found a shop instead of a museum. They have lots and lots of trash, old objects and dust. Don't go.

This place appears in Google Maps as a Museum and I was surprise because I am from Buenos Aires and I never heard about it. Well, it's not a Museum. It like an old shop with Che Guevara staffs. A sign says: For one dollar you can take any photo you want. We took some photos but we read the sign when we were leaving the place. To bad.
