Museo Evita information
Everybody who’s anybody in Argentina has their own museum, and Eva Perón (1919–52) is no exception. Museo Evita immortalizes the Argentine heroine with plenty of videos, historical photos, books, old posters and newspaper headlines. However, the prize memorabilia has to be her wardrobe: dresses, shoes, handbags, hats and blouses lie proudly behind glass, forever pressed and pristine. Even Evita’s old wallets and perfumes are on display. Our favorite is a picture of her kicking a soccer ball – in heels.
Head around to the corner if you need refreshment – attached to the museum is the pleasant Museo Evita Restaurant with wonderfully leafy patio, perfect for relaxing on a warm day.
