This is the most interesting museum I've visited in Buenos Aires. The history reflects the days when BA was a rich, prosperous city. The museum shows how those of the upper crust lived.

Free on Tuesdays! It's a beautifully maintained house with lovely art/artifacts. Placards for each room describe how they were used.

Gorgeous building filled with paintings, statues, and furniture. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century for the Errazuriz Alvear couple, both from aristocratic and rich families of Argentina and Chile. Self guided tour, take your time and enjoy.

I spent a few hours here. It is a remarkable building, an urban palace built for one of the richest families just over a century ago and now filled with their art and other collections. And it has a lovely cafeteria in the garden area.
