Museo Evita: what do users think?


Joel Alexander: Nice little museum tells the story of Evita. Signs and info in both English and Spanish, some videos are subtitled. You can use an audio guide on your phone too which explains different parts of her life. I did need a bit help getting it to work ans the QR code on the ticket was a deadlink, but the staff got me on to the guide a different way. The museum is in and old house which is well kept. Some of the outfits they have a matched to photos which I thought was good, so you see her wearing them. Little restaurant and gift shop on way out too.

David Hall: 750 pesos, decent history and artifacts + history of her life. Was a little underwhelmed and they exit you into 2 paid areas trying to get more money (restaurant and gift shop), not a lot of rooms/ context. But really impressed with what I learned. But it didn’t blow my mind to warrant a 5/5.Visited on Weekend …More

Katarina Ferencova: Nice small musuem about the life of Evita with her original clothes and several videos from those times. The entrance is only 900 pesos and it is self explicatory without need of the guide. Highly recommended!

David Cash: Wonderful story telling of the life of Eva Perón. Some of the English translation was a bit off. Loved the photos and full of her.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended Not sure …More

Steve P: I was actually pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting much reading the reviews. However the audio visual, photo and memorabilia gathered commemorating her memory is impressive as well as personal. She came to life for me in this museum as I knew very little about her. Everything thing is displayed in a very nice and elegant building. Entrance fee is $500 for locals and $900 for the rest of us. I paid cash not sure of they accept credit cards but I suspect they do since they have an associates gift shop and a cafe next door.

Laura Nicholas: I enjoyed coming here, but wish it was better organized. There was not much to it and I felt like the story of Evita was not well laid out. Still cool to spend some time thinking about her influence.

Millie S: Terrible. Skip if you like any kind of working website or decent museum. No one knows what’s going on and every QR code and website is a dead link as others have reviewed. Sadly the front desk blonde guy couldn’t be bothered to help or tell you what went with what. All he tells you is that the audio guide is free with purchase and that you do as you please. Come on, some instruction? Some help? No. He doesn’t want to do it. We asked for our money back and left. What a frustrating and sad experience. She deserved a better run museum

Alex Hakmeh: The building itself is very interesting, the exhibition however, will depend on where you are on the political spectrum. There are historical inaccuracies and omitions, but hey, the objective of this exibit is to glorify not to present a true reflective picture of the individual, the time nor the ruling party, so draw your own conclusions!

Kevin Amestoy: I haven't been here in 3 years but the service, atmosphere and food was still exceptional. I ordered the Ojo de chorizo a Punto (medium rare), ribeye I believe it is in English and it was great. I wish they had some sort of red wine reduction or raspberry reduction sauce for the steak but nothing can be perfect. I highly recommend this place after checking out the Museo de Evita around the corner then coming to the restaurant for a nice dinner.

Benjamin Beckham: A wonderful museum that has been maintained by the great grandniece of Eva Perón. This is a must see for anybody who has been inspired by Eva and Juan. There’s a lot of stuff here that you will not read in any books or see on television. There are a lot of beautiful pictures also. Highly highly recommended!

Museo de la Pasión Boquense: what do users think?


Federico Capuzzello: Very neat and organized, they display all the cups the club has won, as a lot of memorabilia, as well as some history shown in the screens of two rooms. Also some Boca Juniors themed souvenirs, as well as the official clothing can be purchased. There is also a bar in the building. The price of the tickets is decent.

Diego Núñez: I'm actually a River Plate fan though not a passionate one, but I'm grateful of the soccer world because this is a very popular attraction and since l work in the tourism field, I love you guys! Thank you so much!

Mariana Cosmassi: I'm not really into soccer, but the museum is a really beautiful place to visit. And it's very close from Caminito!Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Carlos Ordonez: Nice museum with not much to see besides BJ team facts. A lot more exitement could be put into it to make it worth the trip.Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Sergio Saray: It's a very good place, if you go it is really worthy to pay the VIP tour there's another your just 200ARS pesos difference but you get access to the away team dressing room no the Boca Jr's dressing room. Highly recommend to take the VIP tour.

Pedro Fernandes: Great Museum. Even if you're not a football fan. It's a modern history landmark.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait …More

Miles Macdonald: The museum is I guess a shrine for La Boca fans with film performances of the clubs successes and displays of trophies, team shirts and other memorabilia all set to a sturing and uplifting soundtrack playing in the background. Museum is organised over two floors with two video theatres.

Vojtěch Čejka: Dale gooool! Great museum, lovely. I Love la Boca

Guillermo Loubriel: Very good museum for sport lovers. I am a fan of American football and still enjoyed it. The videos are demonstrative of the passion for futbol. The view of the stadium is also cool because the stadium seats truly surround the pitch.

Ashley Barrie: The option to see the pitch and the stands wasn't available, interior museum only, without seeing the actual arena makes for just an ok experience.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Museo Histórico Nacional: what do users think?


Matt Llew: NOT FOR INTERNATIONAL TOURISTS - cannot recommend unless you are Argentinian, or have a very keen interest in a small number of artefacts owned by key figures in the war of independence against Spain. I’m a big fan of museums all over South America, but this one is small, sparse and very dry content. Exhibits only in Spanish. It also has a lot of Argentine 80s Rock collectors items. The awkwardly domineering security here strictly make you wait to enter approx 10 mins for me, until the front desk is available - I have no why as all the desk said to me was entry is Free of Charge?? Bizarre, not a good use of time in BA, I suggest just absorbing the trendy cafes and atmosphere of the city.

Hussein Duvigneau: English guided tours at midday Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays, otherwise you can scan a QR and have all the displays translated to your phone on perfect English. However it is a lot of reading, felt like I didn't need to be in the museum and could have just read it all in a cafe elsewhere. Maybe a video presentation would be good to cut down dependence on so much text? Still worth a visit though.

Simon Pritchard: Nicolas our English speaking guide was amazing. I read a lot of the comments about lack of English information but: 1. There is WiFi and a QR code that takes you to a web site with English explanations and 2. The best way to see this museum is definitely on a free tour. We went on a Wednesday at 12 and our guide Nicolas was very friendly and engaging. One of the best museum visits we did in Latin America and joined the dots from similar visits in Peru and Bolivia. The silverware presented to General Belgrano on his liberation of Potosi was spectacular. Worth the admission fee alone ( oh no wait it is free).

Rafael Ulloa: Worth spending an hour or two if you read all of the interesting information available on Argentinian history

Marcelo Spolansky: I have lived in this city for almost 15 years and you always find something new. The national historic museum of Argentina is where the history of Argentina is housed. But yesterday when I went there, they were exposing the history of Argentina rock and roll. Entry was free. And for a very hot day in the middle of pandemic it was kinda "cool" inside.

Syed Tassaduq Hussain Bukhari: The National History Museum (Museo Histórico Nacional) was established in 1889 after half a century of civil wars, with the objective of unifying the nation and creating a sense of national identity, exhibiting objects relating to the May Revolution of 1810 and the Argentine War of Independence. It displays paintings, sculptures, flags, standards, weapons and uniforms as well as everyday objects from the 19th century. Highlights include swords and weapons that belonged to independence heroes José de San Martín and Manuel Belgrano, and a flag from the battle of Ayohúma. Museum is located in San Telmo area, on the sideline of Lezama Park with more than 50000 objects on display. Entry is free.

Mike Markin: Lot of cool historical Argentine items. Famous uniforms, flags, pieces of the revolution. Cool old 18th century bells and canons that you can touch (and ring!) outside. If the security dude is taking a smoke break, that is.

Maíra: Despite everything being only available in Spanish, it has great (but not many) pieces about Argentinian history. I would like to see more about the country and its history, but unfortunately it was missing. It has a temporary exhibition about rock in Argentina, showing videos and items about the bands through the time.

Marin Maršić: Only a small part of Argentinian history is presented. The text is in Spanish, but there is a website with English translations.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Al ffvers1974: Visited the museum earlier today, and I am not entirely sure if I'm better informed about the history of Argentina now than prior to my visit: There is no mention of pre-Columbian era, and the visitor is left with the impression that no human civilization existed in the area prior to the arrival of the Spanish. Even the war of independence, and the civil wars were inadequately addressed in the exhibit, and there is no account of Argentina's history since the 1860's. I am not entirely sure how to explain this insult to Argentina's history: Incompetence, or lack of academic consensus on Argentina's past? Argentina deserves better.

Museo Histórico Nacional del Cabildo y la Revolución de Mayo: what do users think?


Josh Bilyk: In itself, this museum is impressive and worth seeing. The displays are great, but they've also employed some cool tech to also make it more interactive. And, one should note the very important history of this building and location. However, there is also a bunch to see and do in the area. There are a number of great parks, local art, fountains, restaurants and shopping.

Jose Manuel Duran: Excellent museum and guided tour! You can even have a snack outside. The visit is a must both for locals and tourists alike. On the first Saturday of November the museum is one of the very many that takes part in the Museum's evening or Noche de los Museums. There are way too long queues then. Originally, in the times of the colony, there was a jail for slaves and lawbreakers alike, who were tortured and packed in a very smelly small place. Fortunately, this is just part of history.

Theodoros Yiouras: A very interesting museum describing briefly and concisely with the use of technology the history of the momentum of the independence of Argentina. Free of charge. A must see.

Marcin Tatjewski: I'm writing from perspective of a foreign tourist not speaking Spanish: The general feeling of the place is nice and it's great that such buildings are preserved in their original style. Fortunetely, there where also many descriptions in English. However, as I person wanting to learn more about Argentinian history I found this place disappointing. For me the exhibition lacked general narrative and was just a set of loosely coupled stories.

Guillermo Loubriel: Good place (it is free). Small, lots of history but most of it is signs with a few artifacts and great paintings. GREAT view of Plaza de Mayo (month of May, not mayonaise).
Response: Thank you for visiting us! We invite you to come back whenever you want! Do not forget to follow us on the networks to find out about our activities at https://cabildonacional.cultura.gob.ar/

claudia menghi: A historical place worth visitingVisited on Weekend Wait time No wait …More

Jay Glanville: English speakers could spend about an hour at this free museum. Some exhibits labelled bilingually, otherwise each room has an English laminated sheet describing contents. Gives an overview of the revolution for independence. Good view of the square from upstairs. Toilets at rear, outside. Area safe from pickpockets during day, unless you are stupid - it's a big city so just take normal precautions.
Response: Hello, Jay ! Thank you very much for your assessment and comment, to know the activities that we do in the museum, we invite you to visit our website (cabildonacional.gob.ar) and follow us on our social networks. You found us like @cabildonacional on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Clara Brito: Small, free and very thoughtful museum, I love it

Brett Kwong: Museo Histórico Nacional del Cabildo y la Revolución de Mayo is not big, and only with very general information about the city. It's free of charge to enter this museum, the location is great, very close to other attractions, so here is always a good place to visit if you wanna quick information about this city

Gato tocando guitarra: Beautiful, interesting, and although there are better museums, this one is in a very fortunate location (everything else is nearby, so little effort to come here is needed for the tourist). Collection is small and it feels like there is more text to be read than artifacts to be seen, but ultimately worth the visit.
Response: Thanks for your comment!

Museo Sívori: what do users think?


Rafael S: Interesting little museum. There was an interesting exposition showing the process of sculpture restoration. Plus, many pieces in other expositions. It's not big, and you can probably check everything in 30 min if you are in a rush. I recommend checking it out if you are strolling around El Rosedal.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Luisa Rangel: Interesting museum of Argentinian contemporary arts, located inside a park. In the garden you can eat or enjoy a coffee. There's also o good shop. Entrance is only 50 pesos (<1$) or free for retires. Unfortunately one of the exhibits (Gisèle Freund photograps) needs technical fixing (v.g. voice and image are not sinchronized or images missing) to have a better experience of invaluable archives shown.

Dara T.: I loved the high quality of what they show. If you go inside during a heavy rainy day, the street outside will get flooded. You will have to walk through the hill. ;)

Leann S.: Lovely!Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Eduardo Colella: Nice "secret" place. Beautiful surroundings, nice facilities and good cultural offer. Go.

Deea: I was very happy with the visit. It was warm and nice inside. The guy working there was nice. We saw two rooms with art and they told us there is as well a bar but we did not go. The exhibition was very clean and very nice organized and displayed. I really enjoyed the visit.

Frederic Lucas: The museum was better beforeVisited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

William Batista: Beautiful setting! Very interesting exhibition of Giselle Freund. February 2020. They are exhibiting the "Salón Municipal Manuel Belgrano 2018" including outstanding art work. The women proctoring in the exhibition rooms are very knowlegable and very much involved with the show. They are ready to have interesting conversations with the public.

Matthew Jackson: Curation here is superb. The Museo de las Bellas Artes may have works from world masters, but the pieces currently out for their recent reopening are just really well put together art experience. Far smaller and yet somehow a touch more meaningful. Very affordable and I really enjoyed it. Next time will try the resrauraunt.

lindsay livingston: A very nice little museum. Modern art. A nice cafe and small gift shop. There is a small entrance fee. Free if you are retired.

Museo del Fin del Mundo: what do users think?


Dominique Lyoen: A small but complete museum dedicated to what Ushuaia is. History, heritage, fauna with birds and sea life, are shown here. Housed into the building that was the first ever bank of the young city, some parts of the bank have been preserved and are still visible here. It's a very small and humble museum, yet it is already a lot of informations to discover and it also is completed by the old House of the Governor, also worth a visit. Go pay those places a visit !

Stf Scw: The better half of the two in one museum for 400ARS. The museum shows a little history and a little bit of the animal world. If the museum could be redone, it could become quite nice. Important , it should not remain so dark, the size of textes must become bigger and everything needs a better structure and layout.

Andy C: The end of the world is full of stark beauty and extreme wildlife. The islands offshore teem with walrus, sea lions, penguins and cormorants. A boat trip offshore is the best way to see this wildlife in their natural element.

Anthony D: Small museum that has a bit of good history, but wouldn't necessarily recommend it especially for almost $10USD for foreigners

Horacio Goncharol: Nice tiny museum with info about shipwrecks, flora and fauna. Figurehead of the "Duchess of Albany" wreck remains here. Worth the visit

Jordi Aran Rico: Visita molt interessant. Interesting visit to the old prision.

Douglas Villanueva: Good place with all information about ushuaia

Francisco Fariña O.: Small but quite interesting museum. They have a complete exhibition of local birds. Unfortunately, they don’t provide much information about the indigenous people living on the island or the genocide led by the pioneers or the Catholic church and their “evangelization”

lego bezzi: i discover the experience of antartica. was free entrance, a simulator with 3d google view and i tought i was at antartida with pinguins heheh must go!! and at the park at the end of route 3 after 20:00pm dont need pay for entrance....i done free camping, and must leave before 10:am..

Shi Hu: Not bad. If you have some time to kill it's a good place to visit. It has an unexpected good bird specimen collection which includes the land, coastal, ocean, mountain and tropical birds - surprisingly good
