Carlos Gardel Museum

The home of the Tango King.

Gardel’s voice produces the effect of a singing mermaid, upon tiptoeing into this tranquil, welcoming building. This is where the Argentinean artist, who was born in Toulouse, lived with his mother for seven years, between 1927 and 1933, before setting out on his journey back to France. Completely remodelled and transformed for a nostalgic experience, it was converted into the House of Tango in the 1980s. However, at the start of the 21st century, its owner donated it to the government, and it was transformed into a public museum in 2003. Although the kitchen is one of the only parts with original features, the refurbishment and layout have recreated the life of Gardel, thanks to the wealth of memorabilia dedicated to the King of Tango, affectionately nicknamed the ‘Creole thrush’. Vinyls, guitars, gramophones, photos, portraits, a piano, newspaper cuttings, books and other interesting objects are displayed in various rooms, opening onto a bright covered courtyard. The museum’s dynamic programme includes conferences, film screenings and concerts, as well as daily guided tours.
