Museum Night 2012 – La Noche de los Museos 2012
As usual, Sandra, who writes My Buenos Aires Travel Guide is the first to announce this month’s Museum Night – a great event to look forward to! Thanks, as always, to Sandra for these great updates!
The Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires presents the 9th Edition of La Noche de los Museos – Museum Night 2012, that will take place on November 10, 2012, from 8 PM until 3 AM.
