To the side of the famous cemetery, this distinctive building -- originally designed as a Franciscan convent -- hosts Argentine and international art exhibits, experimental theater works, occasional music concerts, and an interactive science museum for children called Museo de Ciencias Participativas, where children are encouraged to touch and play with the displays. Some events within the Centro require tickets, but many exhibitions are free. The Hard Rock Cafe is behind the Cultural Center in the Recoleta Design Shopping Center.
