Very impressive collection of military hardware. Rows and rows of swords, pistols, rifles, sub-machine guns, machine guns, cannons etc from many nations. All in cabinets with no touching, no photos. Compared with other military museums we've been too quite lacking in interactivity or ways of...More

Must be shut on Saturdays, go figure! There are number of small cannon outside in a gated courtyard that can be viewed through the fence. Mostly WWI items by the look of it. Too bad I missed it.

If you're in the neighborhood, and would like to see a fabulous gun collection, by all means stop here. The collection ranges from the early Spanish conquests, through several wars (incl. WWI & WWII), represented by many nations. The museum is quite extensive and will...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
