The house is very well maintained and preserved. It is the place where General San Martin spent the last 2 years of his life. His actual flat was on the second floor but the whole house has been laid out as a museum. Opening times are a bit tight from 10-12 and 14-18. Last visit is 45 minutes before closing... More

According to the schedule, this museum was supposed to be open on Saturdays. Well, I rang the bell several times and the place was closed (I went at 11 o'clock). I went to the office of tourism in Boulogne and they simple shrug their elbows and said " I am sorry but we don't have control over this place" This... More

We saw this museum in passing and visited. It is the final dwelling place of the liberator of Argentina and Chile. He is not well known in UK or Ireland. Most of the museum consisted of military artefacts and pictures although the top floor showed the rooms where the family lived. Worth a visit if you are interested in military... More

The home was the propriety of General San Martin, who made the indepedence of Peru, Chile and Argentina happen. There are many artificats including uniforms of the early Argentinian soldiers. There is also space to the "heroes" of the Falkland War that might be perceived by mixed feelings, considering the invasion of the Argentinian troops in 1982. The museum is... More

Wen to see the house where San Martin died; the Liberator of Argentina, Chile and Peru. Good visit; a lot of mementos from his life. Sad that the Argentine didn't appreciate him until after he had died. A noble spirit, and not hungry for power.

We really wanted to visit this museum, went there but found it's not open for public anymore. Maybe closed for temporary ?? It's very disappointed.
