  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Muy lindo
  • Ok
  • Small but nice. 20 pesos to get in.
