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

4.5
#2 of 8 in Museums in Mar del Plata
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.

  • Impressive building that belonged to the Ortiz Basualdo family, dates back to the year 1909, of style Art Noveau Frances, since 1980 became Museum which can be visited today, in the part of visiting this beautiful mansion, you can see works pictorial and sculptures of several artists of the city and the country, stands out the collection from Castagnino painter which gives its name to the Museum, very good works, but what I liked most is the building and its furnishings original almost all brought from France, a true luxury, safety pin...

  • Be in the old Chalet de los Ortiz Basualdo, is to enjoy my memories of the ancient buildings that I liked in my childhood. The well mounted exhibition with works from Castagnino and others, allow to maintain the cultural image of a Mar del Plata that was always very worthy.
