The Museum of Natural Science in Parque Centenario was opened in 1937, but it actually existed before that. In 1812 it was originally opened in another location, and moved around a couple of times until ending up here, next to the park. While the animal and plant life is fascinating, I found myself drawn to photographing the building itself and the many paintings inside depicting extinct species and natural landscapes. The place is a mix of A Night at the Museum meets Metropolis, and while the place could use a bit of funding thrown its way, the 3 peso entry fee is worth every centavo just to wander around for a couple of hours.
I am an Australian who has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four years. My perception of the city has changed as I have adapted to my environment and new home. I am somewhere between a tourist and a local and find beauty in my everyday environment.
