Although only is Spanish, the little tour was fun and informative. You really get to see how important mate is in the culture. Entry cost is now 50 pesos.

This museum is mainly a mass display of Mate paraphernalia, which you'll see throughout Argentina. The thing that sets it it apart is a short video (10 min?) that shows the mate plant and explains how it is harvested, dried and packaged for sale. We...More

This neat little museum is worth the trip on the train to Tigre. It has 2000 items and the owners are very informative about this nacional past time. It has a video to watch with English subtitles. I even bought a mate cup, straw and...More
