  • A very comprehensive Museum about weapons. There are weapons many times (wars of independence, first and second world wars, Falklands) and several countries of the world. Obviously, you can find lot of material of national origin and also imported weapons which were used in our army. The most notable rooms are the first, which are weapons and medieval armor, and one in which are weapons of the far East (Japan, India, Thailand). The collection of figures of soldiers is also very extensive.

  • A small Museum of arms but with an important collection of ancient weapons. Worth it only if you are an interested in the issue of arms -

  • No doubt I thought it was the best (short, long) guns, and cannons Museum located in urban area of a city in Latin America. My congratulations for an excellent collection and everything was very well organized. Stop forced if you are interested in weapons or military history. Very close to the San Martin square so you can make many other activities nearby

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
