There is no better place to explore the mystique, controversy, and legend that is Evita Perón, perhaps the most famous Argentine of all. This museum offers a thorough and quite personal study of the life of the former first lady, known for her charity work, her fashion and beauty, as well as her tragic death in 1952 at the age of 33. Paradoxically, given Perón's working class roots and populist politics, the museum is housed in an elegant building in one of the city’s most upscale neighborhoods. There is also a very popular café while the English-language audio tour is helpful.
