Located in the heart of the homonymous foundation where many social actions were carried out in the past, this museum looks back at the short life (1919-1952) of the most emblematic of the country's first ladies (1946-1952): Maria Eva Duarte de Perón, more commonly known as Eva Perón or "Evita". An actress in the early hours of her professional career, she made a name for herself on the radio. Then, she discovered the political world when she got close to the future Argentinean president, Juan Domingo Perón in 1944, when she was only 24 years old. She married him a year later, in 1945. All Argentines remember her as a woman who fought hard for women's and workers' rights. She was the reason Argentina gave women the right to vote in 1947. A mythical and controversial figure, Eva was the first Argentine woman to appear in official photographs alongside an incumbent president of the Republic (1946). In the house, don't forget to look out over the beautiful interior patio where Eva Perón has received many foreign presidents. Several rooms in the museum return to the role she played in the highest political spheres of the country and the mystery that long surrounded her remains. Her remains were held for several years by the military dictatorship, using her as a symbol to assert her power over the Argentine people. The body was not returned to the family until 1976 after a long journey. Since then it has been buried in the famous cemetery of Recoleta.

Excellent musée consacrée à la madone des Argentins, visite incontournable pour mieux comprendre celle qui demeure la fierté du pays, de par ses actions, son courage et son amour du peuple.
