A modern interactive system allows you to get closer to the most relevant historical events


The Museum occupies the building where the Cabildo of the City of Trinidad and Puerto de Santa María de los Buenos Aires, capital of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, operated. In November 1939 it was opened to the public for the first time, but only the rooms on the upper floor were enabled. In 1960, an act of Congress legalized its creation and its national jurisdiction.

The heritage of the Museum is made up of the building itself and the collections made up of documents, paintings and objects from the 17th to the 20th centuries. In the room dedicated to the Cabildo as an institution, the activity that was carried out in the times of the Spanish colony is reflected and you can see, among other objects, the Royal Standard and the Ark of Cash, where the coins collected by the Cabildo were kept. through tax collection.

Also on display is the Militia Regulations of 1801, a document that describes how citizens should form these armed bodies to engage in combat given the need to defend the city.

For the celebrations of the Bicentennial of the May Revolution, repair work was carried out and among the novelties, modern interactive communication systems were incorporated that favor public participation. The Cabildo Museum has two touch screens, one with the image of the "Open Cabildo of May 22" painting and another with the locations of the most important geographical points of the city of Buenos Aires in the year 1810 and its location in the 2010.
