It´s a very small museum that provides a brief explanation about some historical characters and traditions of Argentina: the indigenous, Tango, gauchos, etc. An easy way to understand and learn.

Rather small and tight, the museum still answers some questions and provides good and solid explanations regarding the history on the continent. Entrance fee is 35 pesos and you can also buy nice postcard, yet they are not cheap.

La Boca
A neighborhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca
still maintains this past alive in its streets today.
Due to its proximity to the river, the neighborhood
became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a
wide variety of origins, who ended up living together
in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a
melting pot of different cultures and traditions that
birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays,
