A Journey to Art and History

A Journey to Art and History


Buenos Aires is a culturally rich castle, a powerhouse of art and history in Argentina. This route keeps you in the mood of discovery, displays a wide range of visual arts in the best of the city’s galleries, exhibitions, and of course, museums.

Some might feel bored talking about museums; but hey, let’s give this route a chance and explain why there are so many museums in this capital (more than 150!) and how they attract so many tourists.

The loop is nice, family-friendly, and is highly recommended for kids – who have the most artistic and creative minds on Earth.


Most of the trail is wide and well-paved. Watch for the traffic and walk your bike when it’s too chaotic. The city is worth slowing down for anyway.


The National Museum of Fine Arts (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes), one of the top visited museums in the city, is where the loop starts and finishes. There are bike racks in front of it. Various parking lots can be found not far from here.

Food and drink

Dandy – just a few minutes' walk crossing the street from the José Hernández Folk Art Museum is very international and appealing.

More details
