Buenos Aires is a fabulous city, with so much to see and do! If you’re spending time in Argentina’s capital, here are three great museums to check out.

National Museum of Fine Arts (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes)

A museum with an eclectic mix or styles and eras, these gallery rooms promise something for everyone. The collection is vast, so it may be worth highlight a few exhibitions or collections you’d like to see, and then making a beeline for those.

Museo El Templo del Futbol

You can’t go to Argentina and not engage in the cultural obsession with football (or soccer). This museum, called the ‘Temple of Soccer’, is a great place to get a sense of how deep the love for this sport runs in Argentina. Knowledgable English speaking guides can give you a tour around the stadium.

Museo Historico Nacional

The national history museum tells the story of Argentina, especially its war of independence. There are artefacts and artworks on display, telling different stories from the war. It’s a sobering experience, but worthwhile if you want to know more about the country you’re visiting.
