Museo Municipal de Arte Juan C.Castagnino, Mar del Plata

4.4
#2 of 7 in Museums in Mar del Plata
Specialty Museum Museum
Standing out like a fairy-tale mountain castle in the streets of Mar del Plata, Museo Municipal de Arte Juan C.Castagnino impresses as much with its striking towers as with the exhibits it hosts. Completed in 1919 as the private residence of the wealthy Ortíz Basualdo family, the distinctive building now houses a museum displaying more than 450 pieces by local artists. Admire the works of Mar del Plata painter Juan Carlos Castagnino, who has around 180 pieces on display. Sadly, the museum feels somewhat incomplete, as several of its rooms remain empty.

  • Emblem of Norman architecture and historical place where lived a families of the Río de la Plata artistocracia, the Museum has 3 floors: the first two are itinerant exhibitions of several artists, and in the latter, the prolific work of J. Castagnino. Worth take the guided visit and revel in the description of the different architectural styles fused during its construction and subsequent reform.

  • It was the summer residence of the family. Ortiz Basualdo, and lets us see customs of our country in another era. A good initiative to keep it, as the museums we admire and respect for their past from other countries, I am pleased to also do so here, us closer to culture through a simple stroll. You can also see works from Castagnino, with good explanations.
