Spend some time in Buenos Aires, and you might be asked the question, River Plate or Boca Juniors? These soccer rivals fuel the city’s sports scene, and the River Plate Museum (Museo River Plate) gives insight into one half of the epic rivalry.
Housed within the team’s Monumental stadium, the museum showcases photos, jerseys and silverware from Club Atlético River Plate’s century long history. A Time Tunnel leads visitors through a chronology of the team’s leading personalities — Enzo Francescoli and Alfredo di Stefano to name a couple — and big moments, while a 360-degree cinema screens a 25-minute video about the team.
Visitors can add a stadium tour to the basic admission price for a chance to see the locker rooms and step onto the iconic pitch.
