The Museum was created in 1937 when law 12351 of the National Government determined the buying of the residence and the art collection of Josefina de Alvear and Matias Errazuriz. The mansión, a piece of work from the French architect René Sergent, is an excellent example of French eclectic style in vogue in Buenos Aires at the beginning of the 20th, epoch furniture, paintings, a collection of sculptures, jewelry, china and Eastern and Europeans tapestries from the 14th to the 20th Centuries and art objects. It was perfectly justified investment to provide the community with this new museum. Nowadays, it has different rooms decorated by the most distinguished European decorators: the Renaissance Hall, the Louis XIV dining room, Regency styled Ball Room, Luis XVI Hall and the Study. This Museum has in its collection works by El Greco, Fragonard, Corot, Manet, Boudin and Fantin Latour.
