  • What difficult to be objective, but I will try: excellent museum where you can see how born Argentina, since it was part of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata into the country as it is currently known. (if you like the story, it is ideal) Beautiful House of the 19th century. Dedicated attention of the staff. Well themed rooms. A separate point deserves the room where the corvo sable of Gral San Martín guarded by grenadiers. Exciting when they do the changing of the guard. And finally, the garden is beautiful. If you are Argentine tourists don't visit it that excites you! And if you are a foreign tourist you can learn a little of our history.

  • Our origins, and especially the time of colony and independence is similar, Chile and Argentina fueorn protagonists and allies in the genesis of our republics. So unless can be seen in this Museum, that personally has been the first historical Museum I've ever been in another country, and I was able to verify that we are not so different. Old House of the family Lezama, surrounded by a lovely Park. Sables, unique historical parts of the founding fathers, oil paintings, replica of part of San Martín, among others.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great museum with very valuable pieces exhibited.
