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.
