    Excellent tour of the evolution of weapons (in close relation with technological advancement). It seems small when you enter but has 18 rooms with abundant very well classified models, with specifications such as date of manufacture and origin. Specially designed for all those who are interested in all kinds of weapons and clothing of different hosts.

    Something really sensational with a baggage of history included. A visitation that is worthwhile for those who like guns and history.

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.
