Museum of Foreign Debt

The Museum of Foreign Debt (Spanish: Museo de la Deuda Externa) was opened on April 28, 2005 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The museum highlights the dangers of borrowing money from abroad. The Argentine economic crisis that drove the 2001 riots in Argentina prompted the largest foreign debt default in history approximately $100 billion USD.

The museum is located at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Buenos Aires, and shows the debt's history, how it grew, and the responsible parties for each action since the first attempt of independence in 1810. The museum has no entrance fee.
