The Casa Rosada Museum is a public organism dependent on the General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Nation, and is an integral part of the historical complex formed by the Casa Rosada, the Plaza Colón and the Reja Federal.

Inaugurated on May 24, 2011 during the presidency of Dr. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, its opening implied the recovery and enhancement of the Buenos Aires Fort and the Taylor Customs House. A large and luminous space of 5,000 square metres was fitted out for the proper exhibition of the cultural heritage of Argentines.

Throughout its vaulted galleries, the Casa Rosada Museum offers the public a permanent exhibition that traces the history of Argentina, from the beginning of the 19th century to the present day.

The museum has a varied collection of approximately 12,000 pieces, including documents, textiles, furniture, national and international works of art, medals and decorative arts. It also has objects that belonged to the Argentinean Presidents, referring to their governmental administrations as well as their private lives.

In the centre of the Patio de Maniobras is Ejercicio Plástico, a masterpiece of Latin American art created in 1933 by the Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros, together with the Argentinians Antonio Berni, Juan Carlos Castagnino and Lino Enea Spilimbergo, and the Uruguayan Enrique Lázaro. Originally painted in the basement of a country house in the town of Don Torcuato, in the province of Buenos Aires, it was stored precariously in containers for more than 16 years until it was recovered and restored by the national government, in direct cooperation with the Mexican government.

Through the conservation, research and exhibition of historical objects, as well as its temporary exhibitions and cultural activities, the Casa Rosada Museum is a space for reflection and debate on Argentine history and its protagonists, from a federal perspective, offering visitors a novel experience.

The Casa Rosada Museum is open from Wednesdays to Sundays and on holidays, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm (last admission at 5.30 pm).
