Must-See in Buenos Aires #1: Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo

While in Buenos Aires you must visit the Museo de Arte decorativo, Palacio Errázuriz Alvear.

Escalera Palacio Errázuriz

A palace from the beginning of the 20th century for one of the wealthy families of Buenos Aires. 

Designed by French architect René Sergent in 1911 and built with European materials it is a great example of French architecture in Buenos Aires.

It was acquired by the Estate in 1937 after the death of Josefina destined to be a museum. With its marvelous collection of paintings and sculptures both European and Oriental, it’s a great example of how this family lived and conceived life.

Guided visits in English every day at 2pm are usually very private as not many people assist and if you are lucky they might even take you on the lift!

Don´t miss the Great Hall and its marvelous staircase.
