The Decorative Arts Museum is in an early twentieth-century palace which is perhaps one of the best examples of neoclassical French architecture in Buenos Aires. The Renaissance-style great hall and staircase are worth a visit alone, but don’t miss period pieces including furniture, silverware, porcelain, and European and Asian paintings and sculptures. There’s plenty of English signage in each room. The Croque Madame Café has seating in the museum's courtyard and an eclectic menu with stir-fry dishes, pastas, pizzas, and, of course, croques monsieur and madame. With a separate entrance, it's open from 10am to midnight daily.
