It was worth the taxi ride and the modest admission fee to tour this museum, which used to be a home for women and children in need of assistance (housing, food, skills training, etc.) founded by Eva Peron. The building itself is interesting as it is very European in style and architecture. The tour takes you through her early life,... More

Very interesting museum about the life of Evita. Starts from the beginning of her life and how she became the first lady. The museum is modern, very accessible and not expensive. It requires 1.5 hours more or less for a decent visit. Very recommended.

Eva Peron was a truly remarkable person and this is just a small tribute to her. She did so much for Argentina both at the local level as well as internationally.

This museum provides a good understanding of why Eva is so loved by Patagonians. She was really dedicated to the betterment of woman, children, the elderly and the disadvantaged. We only wish there was more information about other parts of her very short life.

Don't miss this place! It was a great experience and an educational one too. We found out such a lot about the life of Evita. It really gives you the essence of her and what her life was about. A real gem of a museum with a wonderful courtyard restaurant.

Small, cramped and hot best describes this museum. Lots of history about Evita,; however the vast majority is in SPanish. If you don't read Spanish you will be bored.

So you've seen the movie, heard Madona sing and maybe visited the cemetery here in BA where Evita is buried. Perhaps the most famous if really not known Argentine to most Americans. So now visit the museum and learn about the woman. Nice restaurant here also

This was really worth a visit and was not expensive to get in, no photos allowed, so you were advised to leave your bag in the locker. You could take pictures in two areas only, the memorabila there belonging to Eva peron and the good work that Evita did in Argentina was remembered in this museum. the staff were freiendlya... More

The museum is lovely, in a quiet and attractive neighborhood, and the building's architecture also is beautiful. Museo Evita offers a wide-ranging history of Evita Peron's life and work, illustrating how she helped shape Argentina's history during the 20th century. In addition to interesting artifacts, including some of her clothes, there were clips about her from newsreels and televisions news... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
