I'm a big Formula One fan, and I remembered that once when I was reading Juan Manual Fangio's article on Wikipedia, it mentioned that there was a museum dedicated to him in Argentina. Years later, I had the chance to visit Argentina. I was a little dismayed at how far away from Buenos Aires this museum was. It was a lot of work to rent a car and drive out 5 hours to Balcarce, and I was bracing for a bit of disappointment with this museum. It was fantastic! There are so many incredible cars in here: Old Ford Model As from Fangio's early days, an 1886 Benz, Prost's 1981 Turbo, one of Senna's McLarens, beautiful Lancia and Maserati sports cars from the 1950s, and Fangio's F1 championship cars from '54, '55, '56, and '57 (unfortunately the '51 Alfa Romeo 159 is missing). The museum signage is mostly in Spanish, but there is an English audio guide. This is worth the money. The translation from Spanish is very... direct, which produces a few funny moments, but also gives you a good insight into the meaning of the original Spanish commentary. The audio guide has about 50 stops, which is a good amount and covers the entire museum in a couple of hours. If you're a Formula One fan, this museum should be on your global checklist.

Alfredo Néstor Tapia GómezRegardless of the cars that are exhibited in the Museum, I think that the more transcendent is feeling as Fangio and understand why that was so loved. Arrives to thrill and sticks strong the famous photo after win the Championship for Mercedes Benz and see the reception of them employees of the manufactures in the door of the same. That is not seen every day.show original
