Vigilias, música y recorridos

Vigils and intonations of the Argentine National Anthem at the Museum of the Cabildo and the  May Revolution  in the City of Buenos Aires and the Historic House of Independence in Tucumán are some of the main activities that will be carried out by the national museums to celebrate  Fatherland Day , next Saturday 25 May.

 The National Museum of Cabildo and the May Revolution  (Bolivar 65) will start the celebrations on Friday with a vigil on the façade of the historic building in front of Plaza de Mayo, where the Infantry Regiment 1, Patricios, will sing the anthem.
During Fatherland Day, on Saturday 25, pieces recovered will be exhibited in the excavation that is being carried out in the courtyard of the museum and a woman will act as an ancient lady touring the rooms and telling stories of the colonial era, while at 13, 15 and 17 at the side of the cistern will be narrated the story “The day in which the Rio de la Plata will be narrated was left without water.”

Another epicenter will be the  Historical House of Independence  (Pedestrian Congress 141) in Tucumán, where -like the Cabildo- the celebrations will begin on Friday: at midnight the Argentine National Anthem will be sung, along with the band “Sargento 1º Pedro Bustamante” from the Liceo General Araoz de Lamadrid.
In the City of Buenos Aires, within the historic center of Buenos Aires, the Museo Histórico Nacional (Defensa 1600) will offer at 16 a theatrical tour to learn about the historical works that show the battles commanded by General San Martín.

While the  National Museum of Decorative Art  (Libertador Avenue 1902) will hold a guitar concert at 16, and the Sarmiento Historical Museum (Cuba 2079) will bring the public a play that addresses daily life in the countryside during the May Revolution, at 17.

Also in the north of the city, the   Malvinas  Museum and South Atlantic Islands  (Libertador Avenue 8151) will develop a guided tour that will link Malvinas and the May Revolution and at 16.30 pm there will be a workshop for children and families with stories of the women who built the history of Malvinas.

Finally, in the province of San Juan, the  Museo y Biblioteca Casa Natal de  Sarmiento   (Sarmiento 21 Sur) will celebrate Fatherland Day from 10.30 with interventions and activities that will dialogue with the image bank of the institution where the Argentine procerer lived, remembered for his work in public education.
