We saved this for the last day. I wanted to see inside of one of the many palaces, decorated as it was when people lived in them. It did not disappoint. $20 pesos admission, $1.34 USD. It was very interesting with original furniture, paintings and sculptures. There are explanations written in English and Spanish. It is free on Tuesdays and... More

And is a former residence of immense style and charm .. stuffed full of treasures. The biggest fireplace ever. And a great cafe, Croque Madame, in its grounds with tables inside and out.

Really enjoyed this magnificent space, what a wonderful collection of arts and antiques. We stayed for lunch at Croque Madame which is in the courtyard and that was absolutely splendid, as well.

A former mansion now opened to the public view to display its astonishing decoration, art collection and way of life of one of the most wealthy families in Argentina in the 19th century. I just wish all of the rooms were opened to visitation, the female quarters were not available.

Very nice and small museum. Good collection: mix of Argentinian and European art. One remark: all personnel speaks wonderfully Spanish.

Right off of Libertador, this museum housed inside an old, stately mansion hosts an incredibly impressive collection of art and furniture. Get lost in the well furnished rooms packed with amazing European and Asian art, marveling at the architecture. Enjoy a cafe and snack outside at the cafe as well!

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
