Buenos Aires Private City Tour
Reviewed 17 December 2012

It's one of the most important historical places in the country. It's value (and the tour's value) consists of understanding the history within, otherwise as you've read in other descriptions, it is only an old building. It is the place where the revolution began stirring to free Argentina from spanish rule. Knowing history and the contribution of the country to free others in the area, you'll appreciate the importance of the place. Definitely a must see in any trip to the country's capital.

Very little of interest here, and nothing labelled in English. Like much of this area, I'm sure it's fascinating if you are a student of archeology, but otherwise, nothing special. It was at least very cheap.

This place is historically important: it is the place where the revolution against Spanish colonialism started. Though authorities don't have a clue how to make a interesting museum. Nothing interactive, nothing really interesting to see, no interesting texts about the history of Argentina. It seems asif the administrator doesn't have the minimum interest in getting visitors.

Historical place where you can learn a little of the colonial period of Argentina. It's small but has interesting photographs and items in its collection. Besides, it's in front of the Plaza de Mayo and close to the Cathedral and Casa Rosada. You must pay a little tax to visit and can't take pictures.
Para os brasileiros: Interessante lugar para comparar a administração espanhola com a portuguesa na era colonial!

This building is the oldest historical reference of the city. Its architecture is very simple, its furniture sparse and the visitor may its interest in the fact that it used to be the see of the government when the May 1810 Revolution took place
