This is one of my favourites museums. Its really lovely and has a nice coffe store.
National decorative art museum emplaced in the former residence of the prominent Errazuriz-Alvear family. Nearby there are other impressive antique residences now serving as embassies and two parks where neighbors meet into groups for training or running .
Museum placed in an old bourgeois house, great to take a look to the old BA lifestyle!
Posee una colección de piezas de artes decorativas europeas y orientales, esculturas, tapices y pinturas de los siglos XVI al XIX. Ubicado en la Avenida del Libertador 1902 .
Bellísimo palacio con muestra permanente e itinerantes. Hay un restó también por fuera que vale la pena.
I like the special exhibitions this museum has at times. Other than that, its bistro is very welcoming and a cute place to have lunch or coffee under the trees, right in front of the parks.
“Housed in a hulk of a building (originally a pumping station) on the busy traffic artery of Avenida del Libertador, the National Museum of Fine Arts is a vast treasury of Argentinian and Latin American art and painting from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as one of the most important in Latin America. In the dozens of rooms you'll find heavyweight Argentinian artists. Although the emphasis here is on Latin American art, you'll also find important collections of European art and a smattering of American and Asian art. From Tuesday to Friday, 12:30pm to 8:30pm Saturday & Sunday, 9:30am to 8:30pm”
“An impressive modern building, the MALBA contains works by Argentine greats and other Latin American masters. It regularly hosts seminars and has a small cinema for cult and art-house retrospectives.”
“If you think of cemeteries as depressingly dark, underground affairs, Buenos Aires’ Recoleta Cemetery will turn that on its head. Considered the second most beautifuls cementery in the world (after the Pere Lechaise in Paris), the site was declared the city’s first official public burial place in 1822. Aside from being the resting place of the deceased, it is completely unlike a normal cemetery. The place is full of elaborately carved scroll-work and stately pillars that only reach up to your shoulder because all the structures are weirdly mini; it’s more magical than macabre. The burial site of Argentina’s most famous figures, including Evita herself.”
“The Evita Museum (Museo Evita) is devoted to Eva Perón, one of Argentina´s most polarizing historical figures as well as the subject of the stage and film musical of the same name. A series of exhibits, including personal effects and memorabilia, chronicle Evita’s life from her childhood through her political career. The Basics Since it opened in 2002, on the 50th anniversary of Evita’s death, the museum has become one of Buenos Aires’ most popular attractions. Artifacts include a beautifully preserved selection of her clothing and personal possessions, as well as photographs, memorabilia, and video footage. Most notable is her voter card, marked Number 1: a symbol of her achievements in securing the vote for Argentine women in 1947. Last but not least, it has an excellent restaurant located beside the museum. ”
“Main shopping center in the neighborhood. It offers a wide range of shops, even travel agencies to purchase plane tickets or bus tickets to local towns. The green subway line 'D' has its entrance right in front of the mall.”
