Museums

The city of Buenos Aires has 132 different multidisciplinary museums: art, history, science, technology, and a wide array of topics.

There are special galleries catered to children, or the Museo de la Pasión Boquense (The Museum of Boca passion), a large scale celebration of Club Atlético Boca Juniors soccer club´s history and achievements in the iconic neighborhood of La Boca. There also are displays devoted to theater, to the life of the “gauchos”, to religious matters, to sculptors, artists and to other prominent figures in Argentinean history.

Among these, the Museo Evita stands out, recreating Eva Perón´s life and works. Some of her clothes and belongings are displayed as well as objects of the charitable foundation she had created to help the poor. A multimedia exhibit helps relive her massive rallies addressing the working class and see videos of her funeral and the farewell of the people.

The Casa Museo Carlos Gardel in the Abasto neighborhood, is also notable. The home of the Argentine tango´s leading exponent opened as a museum in 2003, and is since then a must see for local and international visitors.


One of the most popular museums in recent years is the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, or best known with a simpler name: MALBA. The museum´s collection shows works by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Antonio Berni and Guillermo Kuitca. The museum also features special exhibitions, lectures and films, and events for companies and institutions.
