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.

  • Nice and free. You can visit in 20-30 min. I would not travel from BsAs to visit it but if you are in San Antonio I would not miss it.  more »
  • There are different parts in this charming museum, from a traditional "pulpería" (village pub), a workshop with a weaving machine, a building which is still surrounded by the moat, a beautiful collect...  more »

  • 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...
  • a place to go back in time and see what was the life of the Argentine gaucho embodied in Ricardo Güiraldes
