Corrientes Historical Museum

A place where Corrientes History is told from its objects. A trip to the past through different rooms that help one to understand the idiosyncrasy of this society from Littoral.
With the aim of " proposing an intensification of the esthetic taste and spreading Fine Arts as a need of the spirit as well as preserving tradition", on 26th April, 1929 , The Historical Colonial Museum and Fine Arts Museum of Corrientes Province was inaugurated.

Located since then at 1044 9 de Julio Street, in a house considered Provincial Historical Monument, the Museum has a collection with different objects considered as an important patrimony of Historical value which are chronologically distributed in seven rooms.

Among the most outstanding objects, visitors can observe Jesuitic Tablets, polychrome carvings, sacred art, antique furniture, musical instruments, weapons, guns, colonial clothes, flags, photographs, pictures, grills, capitals and varied evidence of different periods.

All the patrimony shown belongs to the period between the XVIIth and the XXth centuries. There is a specialized library about Corrientes History and Argentinean History. There is also a project going on to start a file of graphic, video and written documents.

Appart from that, some events are organized here like chats, lectures, concerts and book launchings.
