Buenos Aires Museums


Buenos Aires Museums - Buenos Aires is a city of bittersweet beauty that has experienced a long and sometimes painful past.

Buenos Aires is at the very heart of Argentina in more ways than just being the capital city of this country. It is the heart and soul of a country that has seen some of the wealthiest times and some of the most difficult times – but the passion and allure of this city comes from a character of perseverance through adversity, a passion for national independence, and a contagious faith against all odds.
