Museo Evita, Buenos Aires

The Evita Museum is housed in a mansion constructed for the Carabassa family during the first decade of the 20th century. Architect Estanislao Pirovano gave the mansion its formal image which combines elements from both the Plateresque and Italian Renaissance styles. This beautiful building was declared a National Historical Monument in 1999. In 1948, the Fundación Eva Perón bought, restored and designated the mansion as Hogar de Tránsito (Temporary Home) #2, a shelter for women and children with no resources. On July 18, 1948, Evita inaugurated El Hogar with these words, “The Temporary Home shelters those in need a nd those who have no home... for as long as necessary until work and a home can be found... .” Evita offered the women and children “an open door, a place set for them at the table, a clean bed,” as well as “consolation and motivation, encouragement and hope, faith and self-confidence.” The walls of this building once echoed with the strong voice of Evita and the joyful voices of the women and children who found refuge in it. Now it houses the Museo Evita, a living museum where people can come to know, understand and appreciate the life of the most important woman of Argentine history.
