The Museo Evita was created in 2002 as part of the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Históricas Eva Perón, operating under the auspices of the National Secretariat of Culture, with Evita’s great-niece María Cristina Alvarez Rodriguez as president.
The Fundación de Investigaciones Históricas Eva Perón (FIHEP), founded by Evita’s family in the 1990’s, has merged into the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Históricas Eva Perón.
The INIHEP continues the study of Eva Perón’s role in Argentine history, functioning as a center for research, an archive for documents and oral histories, and a publication center for investigative studies.
The English language Eva Perón Historical Research Foundation continues to work with researchers of the INIHEP and the Museo Evita to preserve Evita’s authentic historical legacy. Visit MUSEO EVITA.
As the invaluable and infatigable president of the Evita Museum Association, MARIA CRISTINA BANFI (mother of Cristina Alvarez Rodríguez) worked tirelessly to honor Evita’s legacy and make her true story known. She will be greatly missed.
