  • Do you wanna see how politic oligarchy lived in the past?? This is the place. Due to the Covid-19 you can only visit the first floor. However, it's enough to admire and remain surprised by the furniture and else. Great place to go to! It's free ;)
  • Incredible estate from the Argentina's golden age. Well maintained. It should have more content, or organized collections to be consider a "museum" However, it worth to be visited. Admission is free.
  • Beautiful mansion made into a beautiful gallery. The queue moves quickly, so don't leave based on a long line of people.
  • i could say that is the best museum in BA, so pretty, the staff there was not the most friendly, but worth it...
  • Incredible place. Don't miss the guided tour about the history of this place and the owner family. It's free!
