"El Abasto" shopping center is located in a stunning art deco building that until 1984 housed the city's main produce market. It's located on the famous Avenida Corrientes in the Balvanera neighbourhood.
The mall has many local and big name stores, a food court, two cinema screens, an exhibition space and a children's amusement arcade with electronic games.
It also contains the Museo de los Niños, (Children's museum - there is an entry charge), an interactive museum that replicates a city on a small scale and where children can play at being builders, doctors, sailors, shop clerks, chefs, actors and parents - perfect to visit as a family.
The museum is designed for children aged up to 12 years, and there is a special dedicated area for under threes, with soft rooms. There's also an exhibition room and auditorium.
