  • The National Museum of Decorative Art is located on Libertador Avenue, between the National Museum of Fine Arts and the MALBA (trilogy of museums par excellence of the city). Its syllabus covers the decorative, European and Oriental arts. On the ground floor of the building is the temporary exhibition hall, contemporary and modern style. As important are the works on display as the building where the museum is located. The former Alvear Errázuriz Palace, in a neo-classical French style, is a true architectural jewel of the beginning of the last century; where opulence and concentration of wealth are observed in a single family. Through its free tour (there are also free guided tours) the reception and dance halls stand out, with their lighting chandeliers floating in the air. The garden is of the most beautiful of the maison, with its fountain, sculpture and floral decoration, as is the confectionery and restaurant of the main access. The attention to the visitor was excellent, both the staff of the reception and the security of the museum. To stand out.

  • While the works of art on display in this museum are interesting, it is worth visiting the property and its gardens, plus there is a beautiful little bar for a coffee.

  • Lovely place to experiece the glorious years un Argentina. And free admision
  • A mansion built in Frech style belonged to an important family in Buenos Aires. It doesn't have an impressive art collection though it is free to the public and you can enjoy the interior design of this building.
