Museo Casa Rosada - Museum Buenos Aires - Argentina

Eva Perón must be the most controversial former figure of Casa Rosada; hers was the only portrait vandalized while the museum was undergoing restoration in 2007. Slices run across the eyes and neck of “Evita” in the largest of a wall of politician paintings in the Museo Casa Rosada.

 

Located in the side of Casa Rosada, the small museum holds a number of Perón's fomer accessories, as well as articles from nearly all of Argentina's leaders. Wall displays detail the country's political history. Presidential medals, guns, goblets, china and clothing lie in glass cases. Paintings and sketched caricatures of presidents hang on the walls. Visitors with knowledge of Argentine history observe with interested discussion.

 

A side room lists all Argentine presidents from 1826 through 1976 next to cases of their sashes and batons- the fashionable symbols of the office. Small items including matchbooks and postcards can be purchased, most with the smiling face of Eva Perón on them.

 

While display titles are only in Spanish, the historical overviews are posted in both Spanish and English. A new and expanded museum location downstairs is currently underway. While it might not be exciting to all, this is a crucial stop for fans of politics.
