Present in tours

This ethnographic museum, created in 1904 by the University of Buenos Aires' faculty of philosophy and letters, is located in a 19th century building just two blocks from Plaza de Mayo.

Visitors can find archaeological, ethnographic and anthropological collections, the biggest attractions perhaps being the biological anthropology collection, which contains around items of bone and mummified bodies. Other highlights include archaeological finds, the majority from Patagonia and Northeastern Argentina, and Andean Pre-columbian ceramics and textiles.

As well as the exhibitions, the museum has a specialised library and archive and hosts conferences, workshops, talks, shows, and guided tours. There is a symbolic entry charge.

Opening hours:
-     Tuesday to Friday, 1pm to 7pm.
-     Saturdays and Sundays, 3pm to 7pm.

Visiting the museum's store allows the chance to see musical instruments and weapons from all over the world: ceramics from the Americas, miniatures from the Andes and Central America, carvings from Africa and Easter Island, and religious objects from many faiths. In total there are 2,500 objects.

Entry times:
-       Every Tuesday, 2pm to 5pm.
-       Last Saturday of the month 3pm to 6pm.

There is a suggested symbolic entry fee.
