A window into the opulence of Argentina's upper classes in the early 20th century

The decoration of this neoclassical palace is testimony to the lifestyle of Argentina's upper classes at the start of the 20th century.  The museum's permanent collection features European and oriental furniture, sculptures, porcelain, paintings, tapestries, ranging from the 14th to 20th century, including pieces by El Greco, Corot, Fragonard, Manet, Boudin and Fantin Latour. The building was the residence of society couple Josefina de Alvear and her husband Matías Errázuriz Ortúzar, and was designed in 1911 by noted French architect René Sergent, who specialised in designing private residences in a neoclassical style.

The museum also houses temporary exhibitions.

Open Tuesday - Sunday, 2pm - 7pm. Closed on public holidays.
