The museum opened its doors 26 July, 2002 on the 50th anniversary of Evita’s death.
After its first 6 years of life, it has become a cultural landmark in the City of Buenos Aires visited not only by Argentines but also by tourists from all over the world.
The building, made at the beginning of the 20th Century had been bought in 1948 by the Social Help Foundation Eva Duarte de Peron.
In 1956 it was expropriated by the State.
In 1999 the building was given to the Eva Peron Historical Investigation Institute for the creation of the museum.
The museum mirrors the life, work and thinking of Evita, one of the most important women in Argentine, through modern museo-graphic techniques to bring history back to the present for those who want to remember Evita and learn about her work.
The work is directed to the thousands of Argentines and foreigners who want to understand a fundamental segment of Argentina’s history.
The guided tours take place Tuesdays to Sundays in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French. They can be booked by phone and e-mail.
Guided tours for groups for schools, institutions or tourists can be organized by previous appointments.
The duration of the visits is 1 hour.
