  • This is the Argentina National History Museum. The country's most important legacy from our past. New exhibitions have been inaugurated. The sword of our most important heroe is under custody here by historical grenadiers. A must for those who are interested in what's happened in the past in this territory. Entrance fee is at no cost, but you may make a voluntary contribution or buy a souvenir from their shop.
  • The Argentine National Historical Museum is located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is a museum dedicated to the history of Argentina, exhibiting objects relating to the May Revolution and the Argentine War of Independence.
  • Lot of cool historical Argentine items. Famous uniforms, flags, pieces of the revolution. Cool old 18th century bells and canons that you can touch (and ring!) outside. If the security dude is taking a smoke break, that is.
  • Interesting objects, unfortunately ony Spanish text and no translations or audioguide
  • Everyone should visit it! Is good, cheap and very instructive.
