Buenos Aires has more famous and well-frequented museums, but this one stood out to me as a hidden gem that is not particularly off the beaten path. However, it is easy to miss if you're not looking for it. The museum has a nice collection...More

There wasn't anyone else at the museum while we were there. We wandered and looked and wandered some more. None of the descriptions were in English, so I suppose we spent less time than we otherwise would have. There are some beautiful collections. I liked...More

This is not the most famous of Buenos Aires museums, however it deserves to be much better known, both for its site (an old colonial house with beautiful gardens) and of course for its collections of paintings, sculptures and decorative arts with an exceptional collection...More

Let's start by explaining to non Hispanic people that the term Hispanoamericano derives ONLY from the culture created by the Spanish colonisers and what came as a result of their interaction with the natives. Anyone expecting aboriginal context will not find it here. The house...More

This small but very interesting museum was well worth the visit. Lots of great exhibits plus one on violins. Some dated from the late 1600's. It also had a photographic exhibit by Werner Buschof which was also very interesting. The artwork was magnificent as well...More

The collection contains pieces from all over Latin America, including Peru, Bolivia and Chile. The majority of the objects are of religious nature, but organized thematically . There is also a fascinating collection of Italian violins from Cremona and a collection of women's combs from...More

I've hoped to see in that particular museum a lot about the natives before the conquistadores but it was just a glimpse. The name of the museum do not corresponds to the exhibition. And the Wi-Fi didn't work, sadly.

This was by far the most interesting museum I visited while in Buenos Aires. The collection is displayed in an estate house in the barrio Retiro. The house and grounds are all part of the charm. But the real gems are on the inside. There...More

The building in itself is worth seeing. It was build by Noel as a home and converted into a museum not longer afterwards. It is located about a block away from a famous bomb site (that is how we found it). The collection focused on...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.
