  • Loved this place. Great art/architecture. Was (to our surprise) free. Great stop on a walking tour.
  • The building itself is the main attraction. Downstairs guided tour very helpful to appreciate the many architectural curiosities. Upstairs collection better without a guide.
  • Incredible place in downtown Buenos Aires, merits a visit. Additionally, there's a Asian art collection there.
  • Beautiful mansion with well preserved interior. It gives a good idea of how people in power use to live.
  • Excellent food and service. A little on the pricey side .
