The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

    Worth visiting
    Very intimate museum in an old mansion. It was really interesting to listen to and read excerpts of Evita Peron’s speeches. I cannot imagine someone captivating their people today like she did o. The 40s - this museum brings that home. Was also interesting to see her actual outfits along photos of her wearing them. Museum entry is now 2500 per person. We made sure to visit the plaza de mayo as well -sort of goes hand in hand with a visit to this museum. I’d recommend it as a good way to spend 30-45 minutes in Palermo.

    Highly recommended!!
    I loved how informative the museum was. I could follow Evita's life from her birth to her tragical death. It took me a bit more than an hour to go through, listen to the audio guide and read everything. I loved to merchandise in the gift shop too! Overall, great experience! I definitely recommend it!!

    Brilliant
    I was keen to learn more about Eva Perón. The museum was excellent and well worth a visit. The ticket included use of an audio guide in English which you can use their WiFi and scan the QR code to listen to on your phone. I enjoyed the videos which had English subtitles and Eva’s dresses were beautiful.

    Very informative museum to learn about Evita and experience many parts of her history.
    Enjoyed the Evita Museum and learned a lot. The displays were informative. There was an interesting mix of displays. It’s relatively small so doesn’t take a big time commitment. Check it out. It is worthwhile.

    Difficult experience
    We visited this museum as part of a tour, which was part of the problem. Our group was too big and they assigned 1 guide to lead us through. The museum isn't very big and the rooms aren't large so we were cramped and couldn't really hear. They provided a presentation but the speaker didn't speak English (note: this was an all English speaking group and was the tour was reserved ahead of time). I think this would be a better experience with a group of just a few people or on a self-guided tour.

    A women before her time
    Really interesting account of Evita’s life, and her short period as a very influential public figure in her own right. QR code provides in language audio commentary of the tour. A number of her dresses, shoes and hats on display, along with an actual broadcast of her speaking on the radio. The building has interesting historical value as well. Left wanting to know more about the influence she had on social and women’s rights issues at the time. Taken too soon from Argentina and the world.

    An amazing woman and story
    Wow, what a beautiful place, home of an amazing woman. The museum was well set out, displaying her various dresses and belongings as you walk through her life history. You can see why Argentinians adored and missed her. All staff were nice and helpful, including the security guy who told me off for taking a photo of a dress (the only things you are not allowed to photograph). In my defence the sign saying not to was about a foot above me and I’m six foot two! Before or after your visit go and have a steak in the restaurant next door which is in fact the courtyard of the house.

    Excellent!!
    This was high up on my list as an Evita fan and it did not disappoint. The fact it is housed in one of her former Fundacion houses, made it extra poignant. The museum was very clearly laid out, with all text available in English too. Staff are on hand to assist if necessary. Good timeline of her life, although going into the video of her funeral, without any mention of her decline/illness, seemed to jump a section. Gift shop at the end with reasonably priced merchandise.

    Well worth a visit BEFORE going to the Recoleta Cementary if you have time.
    Excellent and informative specialty museum about Evita Peron! I was with an organized tour group to Buenos Aires and they arranged a guided tour in English. Our guide was excellent and presented her information well. I highly suggest you read a little about Evita — Wikipedia is ok — before going to this museum. THEN go to the Recoleta Cementary. We actually had a lecture about Evita, before this tour. Evita was a facinating woman who did tons of charity work for the poor of Argentina. She did a lot during her few, short years here on Earth. It was refreshing to hear positive and well-documented things about Evita Peron. Get a tour if you can. The gift shop had lots of wonderful things! If you need quality presents for women, go there; I really recommend it. Afterwards sit out in the garden area with a warm drink and sweet snack. This museum is well worth the visit.

Decided last minute to visit the museum and it didn’t disappoint. It cost 1,500 pesos a person. The museum covers her life from a teenager to her death. The museum is the building that was a refuge for women and children who needed food and housing. I didn’t realize all the amazing things that Evita did for the people and for women in Argentina. If I were to do it again, I would go to the museum before visiting the tomb so I could appreciate her life before taking the photos at the Recoleta.

The building by itself is worth visiting. We loved walking around. And then the story of Evita. Beautiful and sad. They have WiFi at the museum and with that you can hear a small piece of her story in every room (in English). You learn more about her life but also the history of the country. And the impact that she had in such a short time. Very well done and organized, we loved it and a good activity on a rainy day.

We arrived to a small museum in a posh part of town and had to pay for tickets. Most of the museums in Buenos Aires are free so it was odd. We were given the wifi code and we used a QR code to access a well produced audio tour in English. The first room had a beautifully arranged exhibit of replica dresses worn by Eva Perón. We were asked not to photograph the dresses. Photos are okay for the rest of the tour. My wife and I learned a lot and considered this museum to be clean and well put together. The use of film clips combined with historical objects made the exhibits compelling. A small, but high quality gift shop. Overall the Evita museum was a great tribute to a feminist icon.

We wanted to go to a museum that was small, meaningful and wouldn't leave us exhausted. I think we ended up exhausted because it was so moving and thought provoking. How did this woman develop, at such a young age and during that time period, a concern for those with so little - women, workers, disabled, children. Unbelievable and all that before she died at 33. Not to mention she managed to steer her husband to the left (he went right after she died). So it was a wonderful glimpse into her life. And then dictatorship, where there had been so much promise. We also went to Recoleta and the stories of her repeated burials/moving of her remains were weirdly fascinating.

Not to make light of Princess Di's efforts and death but seriously, there is no comparison.

The museum is a bit hit and miss on English translations but it was manageable. The coffee shop - not sure what the hype is but apart from sitting in a beautiful treed garden, service was crap and food was ordinary - and no, it wasn't busy.
