The night before we went to the supper club with his name for dinner and tango. The next day we went to his house, where he lived with his mother. It was converted into a museum in 2003/4. It has original furniture, lots and lots dog memorabilia of Argentina's most famous tango dancer. Interesting library with his letters. It's like... More

If you are interested in tango and the songs of the tango that streamed out of Argentina in the 1920s and 30s, this small museum, located in Gardel's old house, is worth a short visit. There are many recordings and photos of the singer and those who sang with him, and I enjoyed it. But do not expect too much.... More

This is a great little museum dedicated to Carlos Gardel, the legendary tango singer and film star, who was killed tragically young in a plane accident. The museum is in a quiet part of Buenos Aires close to the large new Abasto shopping centre. The streets are very nice to explore. The museum is in the house once owned by... More

We were in the area so took the opportunity to visit Gardel's house. The problem with these houses is that.... they are not supposed to be turned into museums! so even though the place is quite nice and there are a few interesting information on Gardel's life, there is not that much to see except for some pictures and memorabilia....

On 735 Jean Jaures Street, a quiet road two blocks away from the Abasto Shopping Mall. For those who are not Latin American, a brief note: In the city of Buenos Aires, Abasto used to be a poor area, devoted to the central wholesale of fruit and vegetable market (from 1893 to 1984). Since 1999, the area has been completely... More

El Museo Casa Carlos Gardel is a small house located near Abasto shopping center. You can find it easily. I was not expecting anything that would blow my mind and that is exactly what I found. However, it is a must see for latin american people and I guess for some europeans too. If you are American or Canadian you... More

The man who put tango on the map has a free museum in a home where he lived some 75 years ago. The neighborhood has homes with interesting architecture and a carnival like style. well worth a hour of your time when visiting the Pink House

Specifically went on Saturday just before 4pm so that we could enjoy the museum and enjoy the tango lessons given by Patricia y Cacho. He told us he is 80 and has been dancing since he was 5. The house actually belonged to Carlos Gardel - easy to get to via the subte of the same name. He was the... More

This museum is small, nothing fancy, but a delightful way to spend an hour and to experience an essential aspect of Argentine history. It is impossible to think of Argentina without tango coming to mind immediately. This is thanks to the enchanting charisma of Charles Gardel. It was fascinating to learn where tango found its origin and about Gardel's larger-than-life... More

This little house is out of the way but easy to get to taking the subte, and definitely worthwhile to visit. It's kind of small but it gives you a good feeling about this great tango legend in Argentina. For tango lovers this is a must! It gives you the history how tango was and how it changed with Carlos... More
