Wunderschoenes Museum in Tigre

Museo de Arte de Tigre Review

An arcade of Doric columns leads from the Luján River to this gleaming white building with ornate moldings, built by in 1909 to house a social club and casino. It contains a modest collection of Argentine paintings by artists like Quirós, Castagnino, Soldi, and Quinquela Martín, as well as works portraying life in the delta. The real showstopper, however, is the beautifully restored architecture: a sweeping marble staircase, stained-glass windows, gilt-inlaid columns, and soaring ceilings conspire to form a microcosm of the fin-de-siècle European style adored by the porteño elite. A trim, flower-filled park surrounds the museum, which is best reached by walking along Paseo Victorica.
