Part of the museum mile, the José Hernández Museum of Art focuses primarily on native and creole artistic traditions in Argentina. Its collection of around 8,000 items, including pieces made from silver, bone, leather, iron, glass and gourd, as well as textiles and musical instruments, provides a good overview of the country's indigenous arts and crafts.

Permanent highlights include a one-of-a-kind collection of rural silverwork from the mid-19th century and an exhibition of sculptures by Hermógenes Cayo. The building also houses the national folklore library.

Open Tuesday - Friday, 1pm - 7pm. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays: 10am - 8pm.

Closed on Mondays and on January 1, May 1, Good Friday and December 25.
