Eva Duarte de Perón was, through its Foundation, the developer of the most transcendent social action politic in the history of Argentina carried out during the first two Governments by her husband Juan Domingo Perón.
She established schools, hospitals and clinics, transit homes for homeless women, colonies of holidays for social tourism, school of nursing, the health care train, sports tournaments paper, among many other initiatives progressive for its time.
Close to the needs of the popular sectors, quickly became the face of the State apparatus (despite not having never occupied an official position), earning the nickname of “Abanderada de los humildes” or simply “Evita”.
Also, she pushed the law of women's vote and the political participation of Argentine women through the creation of the female Peronist party, which she was president. Their commitment to the ideals of social justice earned her recognition of political leaders from around the world and continues to be remembered, more than 60 years after his death, as an emblem of courage and passion
The responsibility is enormous, as it is her figure. Dealing with a character that awakens so many passions as she and all its nuances and complexities, sometimes seems to be an endless task. But those feelings motorized, at the same time, the desire to tell, spread, explain how magnanimous of his work and legacy.
In addition, we have the support of Ministerio de Cultura de la Nación, that daily accompanies us in our task through the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Históricas Eva Perón (INIHEP) chaired by the architect Cristina Álvarez Rodríguez, who is also the grandniece of Evita. We have a privileged and unique resource to reach Eva before being "Evita" Perón, before when it was the little girl with dreams of artist Los Toldos. It is our duty to give to know those stories.
We offer a cultural experience of approach to an iconic figure in the history of Argentina; the possibility of knowing and rediscovering the woman behind the myth, through their struggles and ideals, in their intimate and political life. Also, a museum logical script, developed with rigor by researchers of the INIHEP, which contextualizes each of personal objects belonging to the collection Alvarez Rodriguez, and those donated by private individuals: a doll, a sewing machine or a book that once gave them the Fundación Eva Perón.
The Evita Museum is, without doubt, the path to understand the social and political history of our country in the last 70 years.

Evita has passed through spaces, borders, generations and pass through to us in our daily work
Virtual tour grew out of the need to bring the Evita Museum to Argentine and foreign visitors of the interior of the country and in the same sense we are designing an application for mobile phones and tablets with updated and expanded information
We live in a digital world and without borders and global trend is to move accordingly. The same is true around the art and culture in general. Machine tool, the ability to create new Visual effects power the innate technique of the artist's museums and cultural spaces can look into other side. We must demystify the Platonic ideals and begin to legitimize in his contemporary artistic expressions.
We are in continuous dialogue with other institutions: we develop joint samples, we promote training sessions, and we share experiences.
We do everything with the conviction of the importance of promoting culture and spread the knowledge of our history, not only in the field of museums but also in universities, institutes of culture of the provinces, trade unions, NGOs and municipalities.
Currently we are proud to collaborate with UNESCO, providing advice on promoting cultural and heritage rescue. It gives account of the journey and the recognition gained in over 10 years, thanks to a team of solid, professional work and with one goal in common.
Contemporary art is the clearest expression of democratization and open cultural markets. Crossed by new technologies, artists, techniques and themes are manifested, talk and interact without greater oversight to the eye of the beholder
Icons are reinterpreted, will redefine and are released from the structured canons of the Academy. Live around avoids daily: a mulatto Eva or a canonized Eva are two looks that take the same figure. It is the most authentic expression, from satire or protest, the evolution of popular culture and not we rather than accompany and learn from the process.
Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city in Latin America for excellence. Many idiosyncrasies that coexist in it give it its greatest appeal through a varied and innovative cultural offering which dazzles tourists from all over the world, attracted by the fascination towards our gastronomy, entertainment and popular idols. It is part of the magic, the Pope and Maradona, Gardel and Che coexisted, and where we still have to work to demystify Evita
Argentina is in a process of innovation and productive revolution that position it as one of the great powers of the region. We have seen that economic development is only viable and sustainable when accompanied with internal redistribution policies that ensure economic stability and social mobility of the inhabitants. We are convinced that maintaining this path will continue consolidating and will open the doors to development to show the world all of our potential.
