Mitre Museum | San Nicolás

This is a house dating back to colonial times, whose history is closely relate with the former president Bartolomé Mitre. It is one of the oldest houses in the city, where Mitre lived most of his life. He first rented it from 1860 to 1868 and he later received it by donation once his presidency was over. However, it has been more than a home to him, as his interest in history and research led him to turn it into a key centre of research in our history. He made a map storage room, an archive and a library with 40000 books on American history and geography. It was also where he produced his best pieces of writing, such as essays on the life of San Martin and Manuel Belgrano, or the poetry and political speeches. He inhabited the house until his death in 1906, a year after which it was taken by the government to establish the museum and library. It also has very valuable items, like the statue of Mitre in one of the large patios, one of them a beautiful and authentic colonial one. It also hosts seminars and conferences of intellectuals and historians of the city.
