I am a huge motorsport fan, so the 5 hour / midnight bus trip from Buenos Aires was a no-brainer, but if you are on the fence, GO, countless cars from every era.. (not just Fangio) ... audio tour available, multiple levels, small gift shop, excellently maintained, and not over crowded, one of the highlights of my trip for sure!

Superb museum which documents the racing career of Fangio comprehensively. Priceless exhibits with innumerable trophies documents and photographs make this a most facinating place.

Enthusiastic staff made for a fantastic visit. Damian, Juan and the lady behind the cashier (I don't remember her name)were great. The trick is to ask questions and all of the best of motor sports come alive. This is a MUST!!!!!

We loved to see the exhibits that helped us travel back to the glorious times of Juan Manuel Fangio and his crew. The museum clearly helps one assess his feat at its true size.
