History of the Museum building

The building was built in 1900 by the Sixth Regiment of the line and it was taken by the police until 1912, by the city of Trelew from 1913 to 1932 and various military offices. In the 50's the perimeter wall was built as a symbol that was relentless social fragmentation.

Almost 50 years later, in May 1999, the municipality takes possession of the property and begin the recovery project of this building: the Municipal Visual Arts Museum. The place was conditioned to carry out various activities that currently operate in the museum, such as workshops, shows, exhibitions, etc. but the greatest growth of the institution was achieved with funding from the Basque Country in 2002.
