Chapter 12: Hall of Argentine Scientists of the Bicentennial 

It is one of the few areas that retain the configuration of the first Government Palace, from the end of the nineteenth century.

It is located on the first floor above the west facade facing   Plaza de Mayo   .  Through its double-leaf doors, you can access one of the two lodges of the Palace which was the scene of important events. Among others, it was here that  Juan Domingo  Perón  last   appeared in public, where the  Pope John Paul II  blessed the Argentine people during his visit in 1982, where the football team greeted after winning the  1986 World Cup   and where  President    Mauricio Macri   celebrated the beginning of his term of office.

Originally called  the Hall of the Diplomats , it is one of the few areas that retain the configuration of the first  Government Palace, from the end of the nineteenth century. This room was recovered and transformed into a space of tribute to men and women from the  Argentine Republic  who stood out in scientific activity.

On the walls are the photographs of  Emma Perez Ferreira, Florentino Ameghino, Gregorio Klimovsky, José Antonio Balseiro, Jorge Alberto Sábato, Manuel Sadosky, Francisco Pascasio Moreno, Ramón Carrillo, Rebeca Gerchsman, René Gerónimo  Favaloro  and Salvador Mazza . There are also three   Nobel Laureates : Bernardo Alberto Houssay, Luis Federico Leloir and Cesar Milstein. 

Also included is the portrait of Dr.  Carlos Saavedra Lamas , the first Argentine and Latin American citizen awarded the  Nobel Peace Prize (1936).
