The Future of Museums Is in Our Homes

The Museos Caseros (Bahía Blanca city, Argentina) represent an innovative museological vision, highlighting the richness of what is made with love and dedication at home.

This approach refers to the daily life and traditions of the community, reflecting the collective memory of Bahía Blanca in an intimate and authentic way.

The exhibitions are characterized by their simplicity and effectiveness, deeply resonating with the public as they are based on the transmission of knowledge and experiences from generation to generation.

Instead of following conventional and academic parameters, the Museos Caseros prioritize the emotional relevance of each piece within the social mosaic of Bahía Blanca
