  • I had the chance to see Picasso's 74 drawings... something unique and Berni... excellent sample. The permanent collection is also worthy of being admired. The building is very beautiful, beginning by the façade and the interior very well distributed. Very economic input. Not give five points because they are missing organize some questions completely unrelated to the samples, but they do more pleasant visit, e.g.: improve the shop, add a small buffet with more chairs (which there is insufficient). The day we went it was raining and the place to leave the umbrella was just interrupting the scaner of security access to enter the building, which produced a good riot, few lockers to leave things... all things solved. What I recommend for a next visit to San Telmo

  • Only my second visit to the MAMBA and each time is better! The Museum of modern art of Buenos Aires is 60 years old and I think that it is at its best. Once this museum rescued from oblivion by the Government of the city was able to be an old factory. I guess that the giant size of the elevator - a forklift with capacity for 20 people is much less. It also has a very special ladder to gain access to the first floor where the halls of exhibition and a very nice terrace to go outside to enjoy a moment of relaxation in the open air. Them rooms are very spacious and well equipped, the air spectacular (ideal for these crippling days of summer Buenos Aires), only would miss some banks to to sit is. There is no cafe or restaurant, but taking into account the environment close to the Museum, it is not a problem. The entry currently costs 20 pesos and allows you to visit all the exhibitions that are on offer. He is currently a collection of 74 brought of the Musee national Picasso Paris Pablo Picasso drawings and also a very complete sample of Argentina's Antonio Berni - revelations about paper-, apart from a facility of the South African Tracey Rose that occupies an entire room. He Museum is in a location excellent for know or go the historical district of San Telmo, appreciate their houses old, their cafes typical, them business of buying and selling of antiques, it feature plaza Dorrego that concentrated to them positions of objects curious and ancient, visit the Park Lezama... In addition, if there is time down with the artistic journey you can visit another Museum that is on the same block, the MACBA (Museum of contemporary art in Buenos Aires) which is well worth a visit.

  • I've probably had more (solitary) fun here than anywhere else in Buenos Aires. Malba gets the big international names but this is the place to go to explore Argentine art and artists, curated by the adventurous and a little bit mischievous Victoria Noorthoorn. Pro tip: If there's a video or film showing, take the time to see it. Seems to be her specialty. I've been rewarded more times than I can remember. Also, this museum is in San Telmo, my favorite barrio, with plenty to see, do, and eat all around. There's nothin' near Malba!
  • Fantastic collection. The place to go if you're interested in the Argentinean modern art, early XX onward.
  • A local and national treasure. We were amazed at the well curated exhibits with extensive historical and cultural contexts explained. I lovely snack and coffee bar as well.
  • Great place - Great Art only $20pesos and they have free wifi
  • Modern art museum. Would come back.
