If you love cars, you have to visit the Car Museum of Buenos Aires. It is located just 10 minutes away from our Hostel Colonial in Villarreal neighborhood. A place to travel through a century of history on wheels: the evolution of cars, its arrival to sports and the achievements of the main Argentine drivers (as the five time F1 champion Juan Manuel Fangio).
In this museum, you’ll find unique cars in a perfect scenario which will take you back to the Buenos Aires of beginnings of the XX Century. Behind a wood gate, the museum shows the Street of Memories, a place to remember the times when cars were a true novelty.
