Museo de Arte Tigre

Top choice in Tigre & the Delta

Tigre’s grandest museum is located in a magnificent 1912 social club. Inside, it showcases the work of famous Argentine artists from the 19th and 20th centuries. Perched on the river bank in glorious grounds, the building in itself is worth a visit. Guided tours in Spanish are given at 11am and 5pm Wednesday to Friday and more frequently on weekends.
