An interesting and tasteful museum which showed some great insights into the person who was Evita. Unfortunately, you can only take photos in the foyer and the blue verandah. Not everything is available in English, sadly, but there is enough to be able to understand most of her story. It would have been good to include the last stages of... More

Lovely house and lots of memorabilia, but not a lot of actual information about her life, especially towards the end of her short life. No info on when she died, how she died, if she had children (I don't believe she did), etc.. Quite disappointed.

Even if you don't have time for the museum on your trip...this cafe is a charming little spot tucked away in a very nice residential neighborhood in palermo. The milanesa and the lentil salad is a personal recommendation i can offer!

This museum is located in a quiet, tree lined, mostly residential area of Buenos Aires. From the outside, it looks like a nice house. The museum has many photos and story boards about her early life and her public life while Argentina's first lady. It gave special attention to her efforts in promoting women's rights, advocating for the homeless and... More

this museum is a very nice way of getting to know more of the life and amazing work Eva Peron did, it has a collection of different personal objects, outfits worn in different occassions, they are always transmiting films with events in which she was involved, there is a lot of information and objects from one of the many homes...

Our traveling friends "had" to see this museum so we made it a stop. Very disappointing. Located in an area of City without much else to see. The majority of the information in the museum was ONLY in Spanish so not really appropriate if don't read and understand English. We got through and about 30 minutes. Wish we had skipped... More

This is a museum that house a lot of items that remember Eva Peron. It also has a small restaurant that serves lunch. The food is very good and inexpensive. It's worth a try

Well, almost everything is in Spanish. A wonderful language but not everybody is fluent. We wanted to take the audio guide in order to have more and precise information, but it was also in Spanish. Anyhow now we are more familiar with the life of this famous and beloved lady of Argentina

To be honest, I really didn't know much about Eva Peron before I visited Buenos Aires. I went to the museum on a whim because I happened to be nearby, and I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The building itself is quirkily beautiful, and you get to see photos, videos, and artifacts documenting Eva's life.

We visited this museum as part of a tour from the Oceania Cruise Ship Marina. We were lucky as an English speaking guide had been arranged within the museum and she was able to gave us an insight into the life of Eva Peron.

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.
