Museo De Arte Popular José Hernández - Museum Buenos Aires - Argentina

Like its subject matter, the Museum of José Hernández is humble but beautiful. It showcases the work of Argentine artisans, with a mission to “reunite, collect, document, preserve, exhibit, and promote popular art.” Highlights include ponchos hand-crafted by Mapuche women, traditional metalwork produced in Argentina during the 19th and 20th centuries, and various silver gaucho trappings. A walk through this museum is short and sweet. Enjoy the quick walk from one part of the museum to the other through a lovely, breezy little courtyard.
