El Museo Histórico Nacional will be hosting La Noche de los 200 años. It will remain open until midnight tomorrow so you can experience the Argentine night at the museum experience that you have been pining for since watching Ben Stiller’s adventure on the big screen, while simultaneously celebrating 200 years of independence from Spain. All of the permanent exhibitions will be open to visitors as well as additional patriotic activities prepared especially for the occasion.

Calling all history buffs: The inkwell that was used by the Tucumán Congress on July 9, 1816 to sign the Independence Act will be present for the public to see. Also renowned silversmith Juan Carlos Pallarols will be making appearances throughout the day to exhibit his artwork made with materials from the Malvinas War workshop.

There will also be live music, as any grand celebration should. The Musicorum choir will open with a mix of patriotic and popular tunes. Later, the orchestra La Aventón will perform under Mariana Attardo and Matías Bulgarelli’s direction with some wind adaptations. To close off, there will be a musical journey through Argentina’s most important historical figures and significant events.
