In the north of Buenos Aires City is located one of the most peculiar museums: the Cornelio Saavedra Historic Museum. It’s named after the man who commanded the First Argentine Government and its 90 years old. Saavedra museum is a beautiful house in the middle of a large park in Saavedra neighborhood. The place used to be the farmhouse of Luis María Campos, an Argentine politician, who built it in 1870.
The place is offering three different exhibitions to commemorate its 90th anniversary: “El parque recupera la escultura” (The park recovers the sculpture), “El daguerrotipo: testimonios de una familia” (The daguerreotype: testimonies of a family) and “La ciudad que ya no está” (The lost city). Until December the 31st, you can enjoy these three particular views of Buenos Aires and its history.
The first exhibition is dedicated to local sculptors and the other two are part of the museum’s photographic archive. You can visit Cornelio Saavedra Museum Tuesdays to Fridays from 9AM to 6PM, and Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays from 10AM to 8PM.
