La Salle School Museum

Address: Riobamba 650 – Balvanera Once

This is a natural sciences museum located within the school. It began as a storage place of curious objects the students brought. You will find a broad variety that goes from embalmed animals that belonged to the former school’s zoo to city models, works of art and curious objects of historical importance. Apart from the museum, the visit to this museum is also interesting because of the beautiful building in which it is found. It was founded in 1891, the same year in which its construction began; it ended in 1898. It is an important sample of French Academism in Buenos Aires. The classrooms are organized around two playgrounds. The main access is through a hall that makes up a central distribution axis. The original wood carpentry and the colorful glasses are still kept.
