This highly regarded Argentinean museum of natural science contains over two million exhibits in the areas of paleontology, botany, zoology, archaeology, biology, geology and ethnography.
Highly recommended museum. We spend a few hours here and the time just flew by.
There are a lot of skeletons both from animals you can find today, but also plenty of impressive prehistoric animals. A nice collection of rocks and pre-Columbian artifacts tops it of.
We went here with our 9 year old son and he LOVED it.
There is a model of a pre-historic spider (HUGE) not my cup of tea - thats just nasty.

I arrived here on a Sunday morning and found it open, mostly due to the winter holiday. It's on the right side of the Rivadavia Park so it's quite easy to find. From outside you can already see some of the principle elements Le Corbusier used on his architecture design, including free facade and long windows.This might look normal to you but imagine this was built in 1953 where majority of the buildings were built on bricks (you can compare to the buildings both on the left and right). This really stands out as a modern architecture and many architects followed his concept of design. That's why it's inscribed as a World Heritage Site.
This place is considered cheap as a WHS compared to those in Argentina and quite easy to access. The building has three floors. I was totally amazed by the big tree in the middle of the house when I first walked in. I really love the concept putting nature as priority and keep it as it supposed to be. After walking passed the tree you can go to the so called backyard (the other part is occupied by architect college with no access). I like the first floor the most as they have a big space with a lot of information on the wall, and you can go out to the balcony to see the tree and the park. The second floor is more to office like with many cupboards.
It's really worth a visit, especially it's less crowded compare to the La Plata Museum. It's a new WHS (inscribed on 17 July), so you can see the original things mostly, especially they still keep the leaning chair. Strongly recommended.

We brought a youth rugby team to watch the All Blacks play the Pumas here. It was very easy to find gates, and enter/exit. There was a fantastic entertainment area set up in front of the stadium and the food/drink areas were quick and (relatively) cheap. Only frustrating thing was people leaving there seats and congregating in the areas at the bottom of the stands and blocking the views of those in the lower seats.

En tiempos fundacionales, este espacio era la estación terminal del ferrocarril, que llegaba desde 1 y 44 por la diagonal 80. Actualmente es un amplio y bello espacio público que presenta exposiciones y otras actividades culturales.

We spent a very pleasant afternoon at Republica de los Niño's. Our daughter loved La Granja (the farm) where you can feed the goats, sheep, and llamas. There are also other animals including deer, rabbits, ponies, and pigs. You can also make bread which my daughter loved to do.
There are also miniature buildings (of famous ones in Argentina) which were okay, but nothing that exciting.
There is also a small amusement park with various rides which is fun, and there are boats you can rent as well.
The only drawback is that it is not easy to get to from Buenos Aires. It took us almost 3 hours by public bus (3 buses). We figured out how to do it a little faster on the way back taking the TALP bus to the terminal and then the Corteza bus from there to Buenos Aires which goes along the highway. The return took us just under 2 hours.
If you have a car, or have rented one, it is definitely worth a visit. Otherwise, take the Corteza bus from Retiro to La Plata, and then the TALP bus to La Republica. We tried to follow the routing on the Omnibus website, but it doesn't seem to be completely accurate.
We were also there on a very hot day during a heat wave, and so I am sure it is also nicer when it is slightly cooler.

The Plaza is an average site to see, but best to go on a Sunday when it host a huge market with great food and crafts
