Tigre Art Museum

Tigre Art Museum (Av. Victorica, Tigre, Buenos Aires) – opened in 2006 as a museum, the building itself existed since the early 20th century (when, as the Tigre Club, it was previously used to hold social events for Buenos Aires’ elite society). A casino was also in operation (on the ground floor) during that time. The worldwide Depression of the 1930s caused this Museum to shut down, until it was revived in the 1970s.

Tigre Art Museum has a permanent collection of Argentine figurative art ranging from the end of the 19th to the mid 20th century. Those in search of the renowned masters will find works by Quirós, Carlos Pellegrini, Sívori, Quinquela Martín, Berni, Soldi and Spilimbergo. Admission: $10 per person. Hours: 9 am – 7 pm (Wednesday-Friday), 12 pm – 7 pm (Saturday & Sunday). See its website for more details: www.mat.gov.ar
