  • Excellent option to know more about Argentina and have a good prospect of the independence process. The entrance is free.

  • I went twice, it is a place very nice, well maintained, and full of works and original objects: from the Jesuit missions to the crossing of the andes, it is an incredible journey. As strong points, there is a large collection of weapons to spark and sabres, among them, San Martín's sword, Potosi sink, gift to Belgrano (a must-see masterpiece that took a picture that does a bit of Justice. It must see her personally), a reconstruction of the room of the last House of San Martín, and a collection of pictures not to be missed. I didn't do the tour, it was for another day. I recommend going at least 1 1/2 hours to cross it, the entrance is free.

  • All guided always learn, he rescues, but it cannot be that the Guide criticizes the Museum because its heritage begins with the struggle for independence, if you don't like it will lead to another Museum, in addition to defend positions that the public may not be of bits or, in a special moment as they lived a few months ago by the young Maldonado. the new implementation is very good, the staff that cares for and protects very responsible, and of course very emotional see corvo san martin cteomo lightsaber room in which vivio San Martin. Great place, great area, but for my politics must stay out of the gateway to the Museum.

  • 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.
