Spent several hours at this small museum, and believe they were time well spent. The old newsreels and radio sound-tracks were wonderful-- but I am a bit of a history & politics buff, so they may not pique everyone's fancy. (Perhaps her hats, shoes, & gowns will appeal more to others?) The well-organized [chronological] exhibition was easy to follow, even... More

Evita’s museum starts promisingly referring to the white and black myths surrounding this enormously important figure, but turned out to be a fairly uncritical overview of her life, illustrated by some of her clothes and artefacts. All very well laid out but a bit disappointing, there was a much more interesting story that could have been told. The restaurant is... More

This museum opened my eyes to Eva Perrone and the type of woman she was and what she accomplished in her short life. Being able to read and understand Spanish would help with the exhibits, but some English translations are helpful. Movie quality is only fair and should be updated with modern technology but the experience is worth the price... More

This small museum is located in the toney barrio of Palermo known for its fine dining, estate homes, broad streets, gardens and boutique hotels. The museum opened in 2002 to mark the 50th anniversary of Eva Peron's death. It will give you a glimpse into her life and the period in which she gained her fame. Well worth the nominal... More

The museum is dedicated to telling the story of the life of Eva Peron, who has a mixed legacy in Argentina. The museum is smaller than what I was expecting, but it covers her life and her life's work working with those who were in need. The museum is located in the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires, and it is... More

Good museum, but it would be much better if the security guards did their job. A client was robbed at the entrance, and none of the staff did anything about it. Only the guide who was about to start her tour inside, was able to help the woman. There wasn´t even ice to bring from the restaurant within the same... More

It was worth the taxi ride and the modest admission fee to tour this museum, which used to be a home for women and children in need of assistance (housing, food, skills training, etc.) founded by Eva Peron. The building itself is interesting as it is very European in style and architecture. The tour takes you through her early life,... More

Very interesting museum about the life of Evita. Starts from the beginning of her life and how she became the first lady. The museum is modern, very accessible and not expensive. It requires 1.5 hours more or less for a decent visit. Very recommended.

Eva Peron was a truly remarkable person and this is just a small tribute to her. She did so much for Argentina both at the local level as well as internationally.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
