It is a small museum made even smaller by the fact that half of it is under renovation. When we visited it had three photography exhibits, one that was so-so but the other two were excellent. Price was reduced because of the renovation.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
