  • Unfortunately, the garden of the Museum is temporarily closed for construction until the end of October. However, still worth a visit. Small, the Museum houses an interesting collection of furniture and paintings especially in the 16th and 17th centuries. Be inside the Museum allows us to imagine what it would be like to Spain in the times of the Catholic monarchs, Isabella and Ferdinand.

  • The Larreta Museum, while a magnitude certainly bounded on its surface covered in relation to other museums - however it has 12 rooms for display-, has a splendid and beautiful garden, in which - in addition to exhibit some permanent sculptures - are examples of visual art collective or individual, especially sculpture, providing a natural green vegetation framework and an irregular and sometimes intricate circuit that will delight visitors to the explore it for observe the works. Sometimes I've found the neglected garden, but arriving spring more care for it. Spanish furniture, well Sevillian atmosphere of the House, with its row of windows internal perimeter of the high first floor supported by important columns, and permanent display objects are really beautiful. Inside, everything is neat, maintained with care and professionalism. In the outside, the Gallery cover is a place especially nice, and in the garden fits highlight the source of water Andalusian with their toads giant to its around and their tiles decorated and glazed in excellent condition, that invites to stay is a time long for think or leave wander it mind. I visited him on several occasions and all they have enjoyed contemporary art, which is usually displayed at its facilities, the architecture of the House and its garden and sculptures. There are also scenic and literary performances, which further expands the offer cultural the Larreta Museum towards the society of the city of Buenos Aires in general and the Belgrano neighborhood in particular. Taking into account that it is very difficult to find parking in the adjacent streets, it is advisable to go by taxi, subway or bus. Ideally located just one block from the Av. oath and Cabildo, so there are many means of public transport in the immediate vicinity. Highly recommended a visit.

  • The construction is very wide with a large hall and rooms to its around. Period furniture and tapestries very cute. The best, the Andalusian garden, with its fountain covered with tiles, sculptures scattered through the Park, gazebos and tranquility in the middle of the city.

  • The Museum's collection is surprising. Stands out the portrait of Enrique Larreta made by Ignacio Zuloaga. Is an of the paintings notable that there are in the city. But the presentation of the exhibition does not have deserved quality. There are little illuminated objects to appreciate them at their real value. For example the above picture, which is set at an improper altitude and reflects the light, so it is difficult to see. The garden is a great place. It is well-kept and has variety of plants, flowers and trees very cute. It also has very good sculptures. Continuously there are activities for the public, and they are for all tastes and ages. Realized in the Museum, its garden and a small theatre that is part of the facilities. Tariffs are very accessible.

  • Beautiful place, worth to have no consideration for all architecture, and the place is inaccessible for disability and any other person who, for one reason or another, can not climb steps, since the elevator is broken and according to the words of the employee of the Government of the city: Leonardo Bunono, do not know when will fix it since it is a judicial conflict. I wonder... Why disabled people and all those who can not climb steps have to suffer abuse in the contestation of the Leonardo Bunono employee, and that blame are that the elevator is in judicial conflict? they have to solve the problem as soon as possible! It would be quite simple, since they have space, make a ramp (with appropriate inclination). January 2016
