  • The Museum of Modern Art is an excellent choice for anyone who likes museums, galleries and the like. Beside the Malba, is among the best in the city. Well worth a visit.

  • Not expensive to get in (in fact free for students) but really not a lot to it (3 small rooms). The only exhibit that is really worth seeing is the spider web installation where a host of spiders were let loose on a room, filling it with a series of intricate webs.
  • Very small museum, but worth the trip if you Tango. Pictures and cute sculptures should the history of the dance.
  • Stunning 'first-world' art collection. Scintillating exhibitions by Argentina's leading pioneering curators.
  • The 30 peso cover fee was for the AC. The art was a joke, a 3 year old could have done better.
  • Awesome, I only got to see a little bit because I went when it was closed for an after hours event

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
