Specialty Museum Museum
Take a tour of an informative institution proudly dedicated to preserving local culture and traditions at Museo Gauchesco y Parque Criollo Ricardo Guiraldes. Opened in 1938 in a purpose-built building on an almost 90 hectare (222 acre) plot of land, this museum takes the form of an old estate surrounded by a moat. A drawbridge marks the entrance, while colonial tiling on the roof and whitewashed walls remain the attraction's main features. The theme carries on inside, with several rooms filled with artifacts dedicated to explaining the local culture and the artistic, engineering, and agricultural heritage of the area. Put Museo Gauchesco y Parque Criollo Ricardo Guiraldes and other San Antonio de Areco attractions into our San Antonio de Areco tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It's simple, it's not very big. It is the museums most flashy of the locality, however is not a museum that highlights above other museums in the country.

  • Virtual Parkour of the Guiraldes museum. It's free and you will see the origins of the Gauchos there. La pulperia, different kind of horses ornament and tools to guide them, some history, etc. Then you can go and visit the rest of San Antonio de Areco.
  • Very nice museum about gaucho history. Well maintained and definitely worth a visit.
  • Pretty small and boring...
  • Wonderful place. It should take the kids. It is a part of our past. You should visit and do the tour and then traverse it by itself.

  • We were expecting something else. Although history there is enough information, we expected to see more objects, habits and customs of the gaucho itself. After the guided visit of the Museum, Ariel us more insert the Gaucho as an extra service of the Museum where there world if we saw more things even in the field itself with cows and horses. Thanks a lot
