We had some great lessons here. The teachers each had something unique to offer and really helped us refine our tango (we have been attending weekly group classes for almost two years in Sydney). Try to experience the evening class as well as the afternoon....More

We went to the museum only, not the lessons. The museum is inexpensive (20 pesos pp), and is a hike up a flight of stairs that makes it a bit inaccessible for those with issues climbing stairs. The displays are basically a collection of magazines,...More

20 pesos each to enter and all in Spanish! Two rooms filled with artifacts, some posters, nothing about the history, beginnings, nothing in English, not even a leaflet! I do not recommend!

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
