July 9 | Independence Day

Pieces selected by topic

In 1816, a group of representatives of the United Provinces issued a declaration stating their intention to put an end to centuries of Spanish colonial rule.

The declaration of independence was a sovereign and collective act. The historic Congress of Tucumán gathered 28 representatives, who discussed the design of a new nation for several months and drew the first outlines of the current Argentine Republic.

Our museum displays pieces that commemorate our independence:
