Superb museum which documents the racing career of Fangio comprehensively. Priceless exhibits with innumerable trophies documents and photographs make this a most facinating place.

Enthusiastic staff made for a fantastic visit. Damian, Juan and the lady behind the cashier (I don't remember her name)were great. The trick is to ask questions and all of the best of motor sports come alive. This is a MUST!!!!!
