The house is very well maintained and preserved. It is the place where General San Martin spent the last 2 years of his life. His actual flat was on the second floor but the whole house has been laid out as a museum. Opening times...More

According to the schedule, this museum was supposed to be open on Saturdays. Well, I rang the bell several times and the place was closed (I went at 11 o'clock). I went to the office of tourism in Boulogne and they simple shrug their elbows...More

Although the opening times are limited, worth going to . You are allowed to go around the rooms on your own, but there is someone there to answer any questions

Wen to see the house where San Martin died; the Liberator of Argentina, Chile and Peru. Good visit; a lot of mementos from his life. Sad that the Argentine didn't appreciate him until after he had died. A noble spirit, and not hungry for power.
