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

4.5
#2 of 7 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.

    It is really beautiful. The interior is very careful and can go almost the entire House. Part of it retains its original state. During the holidays holidays objects are sold to adorn the Christmas table.

    The Museum is excellent, great works of art and a House cared the most, the 1st floor is the original house with its rooms, kitchen, living rooms and music, an idea of times in which high society traveled to Mar del Plata to spend the summer or rest.
