Palacio Taranco

The Palacio Taranco (Museo de Artes Decorativas) is an early twentieth century mansion near Plaza Zabala. The high ceilinged rooms (nearly 20 feet high) are full of ornate furniture and paintings from the period. Even the window latches are intricate. Unfortunately, they prohibit photography inside the building, but you can see a few photos on their website. The basement (accessible from an unmarked door in the entryway) has a collection of archaeological findings from Italy.

It makes a nice stop if you're walking from the Mercado del Puerto to the Peatonal Sarandí. Open Tuesday-Sunday afternoons. Free.
