I expected a display of late 20th century domestic art. I was delightfully surprised to find a 19th century household's wealth displayed. The old gatehouse is now a cafe and a welcome break in the day. Well worth a visit.

The name is a little misleading as it is mostly a house museum built around the home of a very wealthy Argentine family. That said, they had a lot of interesting furnishings and the house itself is quite grand and quite distinctive. Nominal admission charge...More
