Centro Cultural La Recoleta
Centro Cultural La Recoleta Review
Art exhibitions, concerts, fringe theater performances, and workshops are some of the offerings at this major cultural center. The rambling building it's housed in was converted from the cloister patios of the Franciscan monks.
Museo Participativo de Ciencias. Kids love the Museo Participativo de Ciencias, a mini science museum inside the Centro Cultural La Recoleta complex whose motto, Prohibido No Tocar (Not Touching Is Forbidden), says it all. 11/4807–3260. www.mpc.org.ar. 20 pesos, free for children under 4. Jan.–Feb., daily 3:30–7:30; Mar.–Dec., weekdays 10–5, weekends 3:30–7:30; winter school holidays (approx. mid-July–early Aug.), weekdays 12:30–7:30, weekends 3:30–7:30.
La Feria de Plaza Francia. On weekends artisans' stalls line the small park outside the cultural center and cemetery, forming the open-air market known as La Feria de Plaza Francia. It's usually teeming with shoppers, who come for the quality crafts. Other souvenirs in the area include quirky homewares and designer clothing at the Buenos Aires Design Center, which you reach by following the walkway outside the cultural center into the adjacent Paseo del Pilar shopping mall. www.feriaplazafrancia.com.
