The Museo Histórico Nacional del Cabildo y la Revolución de Mayo is a must-see if you're interested in Argentine history. Even if you're not, it's free to enter and on the Plaza de Mayo. You'll be there any. You might as well take a look. Besides, the Museo Histórico Nacional del Cabildo y la Revolución de Mayo has the best view of the Casa Rosada.

The historic town hall building which is very noticeable from the Plaza Mayo. It now contains a free museum containing many 18th century artifacts. Some of them are interesting, but be aware nearly all of the signage is in Spanish (probably to be expected in Argentina…). The two levels and outdoor patio can be explored in less than an hour. There is no air conditioning and unfortunately the bell tower is no longer open to visit.

This historic building is where the Revolution of 1810 began. You can admire the view of the Plaza de Mayo from the balcony and look at the exhibits about the revolution. There is even an archaeological dig adjacent to the building. Across the courtyard was an exhibit of painting of Liberator Jose de San Martin at various staged of his life.

It's one of the most important historical places in the country. It's value (and the tour's value) consists of understanding the history within, otherwise as you've read in other descriptions, it is only an old building. It is the place where the revolution began stirring to free Argentina from spanish rule. Knowing history and the contribution of the country to free others in the area, you'll appreciate the importance of the place. Definitely a must see in any trip to the country's capital.

You get awesome views of the square from the terrace. Informative displays about the town halls history. Well worth stopping in. You can tour the whole place within half an hour.

The museum is not so big and I know a lot of people are not so enthusiastic about this kind of tour, but you should definitely do it. You will find a lot of information regarding an epic moment for Argentina. It is not worth to visit the country and not learn something about its history. I strongly recommend this museum. It is easy to find the place and it is cheap to enter it.

I saw the effort of having some english information but I don’t think it’s enough? It has a nice view of Plaza de Mayo though!

This is on the plaza de mayo. Although this place has history to it, most of the people use it to get some photos of the plaza de mayo. Entrance is free and on the 1st floor (not ground floor), you can oversee the entire Mayo square

My wife & I were tired after shopping and stopped at Cabildo Restaurant & Cafe. The place had a large bar along with tables on two levels. We were greeted by the proprietor who asked us if we were from Chicago (yes) so we got VIP treatment upstairs to a secluded area. My wife ordered a 4 cheese pizza with prosciutto which was delicious. I ordered the grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes & squash. My meal was huge, tender & delicious. I recommend this place for the food, drinks, festive surroundings and where you can talk.
