  • A museum that should stand out as a sample of our customs and our ancestors, that all should know and admire, ends up being a place more and not very attractive. There are currently two exhibitions, at least when we went we, silverware and textiles. Small, ideal for doing a very good job... wasted. A patio with trees which give shade, good seats, silence to listen to, but... dirty, sloppy, full of "work of art" dripping pigeon poop. Missing update in Visual techniques and apply them. The entrance is accessible, $20. The place is very nice, when you clean, clear. Silver, for example, is beautiful, works are spectacular, very clear explanations. It should be more about our customs, work in leather, wood, etc.

  • The building occupies the site of an old petit-hotel of Palermo of 1938, together with other mansions at the beginning of the 20th century. The Museum is justly named José Hernández, who was the voice of the gaucho, the country man, who also was interested in folk art, which was anonymous today let it be and is that arises from the different traditions, indigenous or native. It has two plants; up a small staircase we see exposure of anonymous sculptures of the 19th century: religious, tissues, ponchos, mates, Guans, abutments, belts. Through the garden, in a back room, we see two collections: on the one hand, tissues of mapuche origin and another, silverware from different sources. Many exhibitions are temporary, for example, on the night of the museums 2015, he was a parade of fashion, design and national identity by the Chair of the UBA. By that time, another show was "Jewel of the II National Rock". At the same time, very interesting the traveling exhibition of contemporary jewelry, using techniques from textile design. Runs from Tuesday to Friday, from 13 to 19 hs.; Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, from 10 to 20 hs.
