Museo Las Lilas de Areco
Museo Las Lilas de Areco Review
Although iconic Argentinean painter Florencio Molina Campos was not from San Antonio de Areco, the foundation behind this museum felt that this was the most appropriate home for his humorous paintings of traditional pampas life. The works usually depict red-nosed, pigeon-toed gauchos astride comical steeds, staggering drunkenly outside pulperías (taverns), engaged in cockfighting or folk dancing, and taming bucking broncos. The collection is fun and beautifully set out but too small to justify the unreasonably high entrance price, which seems more to reflect the no-expenses-spared renovation of the traditional house that contains the museum. Still, your ticket includes coffee and croissants in the jarringly modern café, which also does great empanadas and sandwiches. Behind its curtained walls lie huge theme park–style 3D recreations of three paintings, periodically revealed. The lively and insightful voice-over explaining them is in Spanish only.
