Very interesting videos about the history of Argentine rulers and the building itself. Focused mainly on the building and its inhabitants. Exhibits and videos are exclusively in Spanish, so be sure to only go if you speak the language well. Great artifacts from presidents, but probably most interesting to history buffs.

A nice museum but there was no English anywhere so if you don't read Spanish you'll struggle to understand what it's all about. It is quite an interesting layout though. Architecturally very well done.

This is not to be missed if you are at all interested in gaining an insight into Argentina's turbulent history. Video screens presenting key events are accompanied by displays of historical artifacts. BUT, it is all in Spanish. The structure of the museum alone merits a visit, being built out of the excavated remnants of the original harbourside customs house.... More

This small but well laid out museum is at the back of Casa Rosada. It explains the political history of Argentina. They display in a lovely way belongings to each one of the presidents that ruled Argentina. Loved it. 8/10

The museum is a great place to stroll and get out of the sun! It's a free museum with many English speaking staff around who can answer questions. The restrooms are also GREAT! They have a great painting of Peron and Evita - the same one that's in the Casa Rosada. They also have staff that dress in military guard... More

Amazing that the leaders of Buenos Aries funded the major effort to salvage this wonderful history. I could only see parts of it the day of our visit due to a special function pending but the catwalk parts I saw were impressive.

This is a museum with remnants from Buenos Aires past. If you find yourself in the area, a few minutes in this museum are worthwhile.

We could not get into the Casa Rosada on a February weekend, when it was advertised free. Please know ahead of time you will not enter the building unless you have a reservation, even though it is free! You can do this on the internet and maybe from home before you leave for Argentina. It is an attractive building and... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
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 test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
