Museo Casa Carlos Gardel information
Small but noteworthy is this tribute to tango's most famous voice. Located in Gardel's old house, this museum traces his partnership with José Razzano and displays old memorabilia like photos, records and news clippings. There isn't a whole lot to see, so it's best for real fans or just the curious; look for the cluster of colorfully painted buildings. Free tango classes offered Wednesday and Friday at 6pm, and Saturday at 3pm.
