Museo Municipal de Arte Juan C.Castagnino, Mar del Plata
(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • An excellent place. It has 3 floors. The first and third floor featuring our artists (the third is particularly dedicated to Castagnino) and the second floor displays all the furniture that was the House more than 100 years ago. Much history, lots of culture in one place, and over people who attends the place are more than helpful, very friendly and always ready to clear any doubt. A place that is required if you're in the city.

  • A place where one is transported to the past, is the original furniture, kitchen, bed linen, bedspreads from the family. Really interesting, the entrance is very economic, worth paying for a visit. It is part of the history of Mar del Plata
