The national drink of Argentina, mate, is a brewed herb that’s traditionally sipped through a special metal straw—and in a social and communal setting. This museum in nearby Tigre plays tribute to the special role of mate in Argentinian culture—and...more
I haven't heard about this museum before I went to Tigre, I saw the sign only by coincidence, but I am so happy that I found this place! Although the short video at the beginning is a bit outdated, but the lady at the museum...More
