National Museum of Decorative Art

The National Museum of Decorative Art, located in Buenos Aires City, was established in 1937 after the acquisition, by the State, of the building that had been the Errázuriz Palace owned by Matías Errázuriz Ortúzar (Chilean ambassador in Argentina) and his wife Josefina de Alvear. Both had amassed a collection of art objects and furniture, which the State acquired at the same time.

The building, constructed between 1911 and 1917, is in the French neoclassical style and was designed by architect René Sergent.

The museum is open for visitation from Tuesday to Sunday, from 12:30 to 19:00, and admission is free.
