Tigre, Argentina – February 2020 – Art Museum of the Delta

The Art Museum of Tigre, Argentina is located in a fantastic building known as the Tigre Club. This club, completed in 1912 as a casino, was located next to a hotel that was torn down decades ago. It was for many years the meeting place for the movers and shakers of the area.

The casino was forced to close in the 1930s, and the building functioned as a restaurant for many years. Finally in the late 1970s it was identified as a National Historic Monument.

In 2006 it was restored and opened as the Tigre Art Museum. The building is magnificent.



























The art collection focuses on life on the delta and the Rio De La Plata.
