    Although nowadays it works as cultural part of the acba, the building itself saves another thriving Argentina architecture and always looking to Europe, worth come and discover it.

    Visit it was a return to the past. Well maintained building. It shows respect for the old things that were important and valuable for a country. It has only guided tours but it is possible to visit a library area. The building is like living in another time, the scales, all. It is a Yes or if you visit it. It is next to the Casa Rosada by what the sector is very travel. Here the House of culture of the Ministry of culture, where was formerly the press works.
