The Historic House

The Historic House is the cradle of our independence and a museum to revive our great history and culture. A safety pin in Tucumán.

Casa de Tucumán

The Casa Histórica de la Independencia Museum is popularly known by the Tucuman as “Casa Histórica”. Tourists who arrive from all over the country know it as the “Casita de Tucumán”. It is an iconic building of our history as well as of our culture.

The Historic House is the cradle of Independence, where in 1816 the absolute liberation was signed, which had already been brewing since 1810. More than 200 years ago Congress gathered from all over the country to end the relationship of dependency with the Kingdom of Spain.

Today, those who arrive in Tucumán the first thing they do is go to the Historic House. Whether to take a photo on its particular façade or to enter the museum and learn about the great history of Tucumán.

What does the Historical House offer us?

The most accomplished activity is the guided tour . A host accompanies us and shows us the different rooms that the house has and the elements that are in each. We'll find weapons, clothes, books, documents and paintings from the time. There are more than 700 historical elements, plus the Declaration of Independence. The most important atmosphere is probably the lounge where the Independence was signed. Salon that has a particularity: it is the only one that has remained intact and unchanged since 1816. The rest of the house has been modified and rebuilt. Despite this reconstruction, the historical value has not been lost and remains intact.

The museum also offers a light and sound show. This show allows us to have a sensory experience about what those days were more than 200 years ago. It is very attractive and fun, especially for children.

At some point, theatrical works were performed inside the museum, in its courtyards and environments, where the actors showed how the Independenceprocess was. A very good show, with professional actors and who gave participation to the public.

In the Historical House there are also talks and workshops linked to our 200 years of history. A place that makes us reflect on our past, present and the projections we have towards the future.

The Historic House is more than a building on a 50-cent coin: it is the birthplace of freedom for Argentines. And, for both Tucuman and visitors, it is an unpostponable appointment in the Garden of the Republic.
